“Little Slice of Paradise”
Review of Etty Bay

Etty Bay
Ranked #3 of 7 things to do in Innisfail
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Deep cyan waves, looming rainforest atop rolling hills, melodious seafoam crashing against an endless rocky coastline....
In this intimate little beach, you can swim inside the stinger-net, picnic beneath a towering emerald rainforest, and get up-close-and-personal with sweet, curious and gorgeous cassowaries! Down on the beach, you can watch the sunrise. Up on the hills, you can watch the sunset - as far as the most distant mountains! (Well, weather permitting...!)
If ever you feel like your life is just a gigantic pile of mud, reach inside and you may find this little yellow topaz - a delectable, tiny, slice of paradise.
Remove all worries from your heart and mind... and soak it all in, as long as you need!

Etty Bay is a nice small beach to visit, beautiful location not far from Innisfail.

Visited a few time from Cairns and well worth it, small Cafe close by so you can get some food and drinks.

A beautiful place to take a relaxing walk, no dogs are allowed due to the Cassowaries. Drive carefully on the way out to Etty Bay as you can often come across cassowaries on the road. There are toilets, a small convenience store, caravan park and life saving club. During stinger season a net is put out for swimming. Be aware of possible crocodile sightings. There is no mobile reception once you enter Etty Bay.

This was first visit to Etty Bay staying in a deluxe cabin.
This was a huge disappointment, Iam sorry but I expected a lot more for a cabin in this price range.

The beach is still as beautiful as ever, the drive to Etty Bay is full of outstanding scenery.

Our next trip will be a day trip.

A little bit of a drive from Innisfail CBD, but it was a beautiful drive. The beach was nice and it had a netted area to swim. We were lucky enough to see a cassowary.
