Mission Beach is a stunning 14km stretch of golden sand between Townsville and Cairns in North Queensland. Here the tropical rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef in a place of unspoilt natural beauty. Castaways Resort and Spa is a stunning beachfront resort with a popular restaurant and cocktail bar. Opened in 1984-5 the resort is popular with families and couples. After 15 years in business and the arrival of new owners, Castaways Resort and Spa needed to be revitalised, and Edge Architecture’s Far North Queensland AIA commended amendments have done just that. The aim was for Castaways Resort to have a contemporary beach resort atmosphere and engage with the tropical climate, the coastal location and the local community.
