The track takes you through beautiful remnant coastal rainforest and offers spectacular glimpses of Boat Bay. As you walk through, note the endangered arenga palms, king ferns and the large variety of significant trees. Look out for cassowaries and a wide variety of rainforest birds inhabiting this area. At its northern end the track follows the beach before entering coastal rainforest. At its southern end, it emerges from rainforest at the Clump Point Boat Ramp Rd to meet the Ulysses Link Walking Trail
The trail begins at the Mission Beach Information and C4 Visitor Information centre but you can walk half way either way from the front of our property.

This popular coastal trail is an enjoyable and picturesque 4km (one way) route that includes beach and forest walking as well as island views. The track cuts through a wide variety of coastal rainforests to get to beaches and rocky headlands. It offers great views of the Family Group of Islands and the chance to see cassowaries, wallabies and other rainforest animals. Peer down into the ocean from lookout points to spot turtles, dugongs and dolphins. The Kennedy Walking Track takes you from South Mission to Kennedy Bay, past the landing place of 1848 explorer Edmund Besley Court Kennedy. If you have the time you can then walk the length of Kennedy Bay along the beach to finish at the Hull River. The communities of Hull and Tully Heads are on the other side. Return is via the same pathway. This trail is suitable for a wide range of walkers, although the second half includes more stairs and a bit of rock-hopping. There is a wide boardwalk to the first beach, known as Lover’s Beach.
