Water Sports · Beaches
Wonga Beach is a small rural residential town, north of Cairns in Queensland Australia.GeographyWonga Beach is a beachside town situated between the small residential towns of Rocky Point and the Daintree township. It is approximately 17km north of the town of Mossman. In 1985 a large volcanic eruption beneath the Coral Sea released thousands of Pumice stones to the ocean surface which were then blown along north Queensland's shore by the trade winds.FaunaBirdwatchers visit Wonga Beach to see three uncommon bird species: Gould's bronze cuckoo, double-eyed fig-parrot and the beach stone-curlew. The last species is easily confused with the ubiquitous bush stone-curlew noted for its wailing calls at night.PopulationWonga Beach has 746 as of the 2011 census.ServicesWonga Beach has a small number of services spread throughout the area.Caltex service stationIn addition to automotive fuels, the service station incorporates a small convenience store with an ATM. The site was previously run as a British Petroleum and before that Mobil but changed to Caltex in 2007. Nearby there are picnic tables, a post box, telephone booth and a display of model cassowaries. In 2011 three shops were added to the complex. A pharmacy opened, and the other shops are available to rent. The Caltex service station is the only fuel outlet in the Daintree Valley and opens early (5:30am) and closes at 8:30pm.
