Murdering Point Winery is part of Australia's premier tourism region, Tropical North Queensland, where lush tropical rainforests meet white coral sand beaches sheltered by the islands and reefs of the Great Barrier Reef. The winery is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes south of Cairns on the Bruce Highway and 20 minutes north of Mission Beach. The cellar door is open for tastings from 9.30 am to 5.00 pm, seven days except Good Friday, Christmas Day and opens 1.00 pm to 5.00 pm ANZAC Day. It is a major attraction of the region's key self-drive tourist routes including Canecutter Way, the Great Tropical Drive and the Great Green Way.

The area is renowned for its World Heritage wet tropical rainforests, it's amazing array of tropical flora and fauna, some of Australia's best beaches and superb coastal and island resorts.



The Canecutter Way

It follows the route of the old Bruce Highway from Innisfail to Silkwood through the hamlets of Wangan, South Johnstone, Mena Creek and Silkwood finishing in Kurrimine Beach in Tropical North Queensland.

The original highway winds its way through virgin rainforest, canefields, canecutter barracks, old world sugar towns, sugar mill, original Queenslander pubs, waterfalls, and even a castle or two in the rainforest!

A part of the Great Green Way between Cairns and Townsville, the Canecutter Way offers the traveller a truly fascinating experience.

Boutique eateries, the mutli-award winning Paronella Park, accommodation in unique bed and breakfasts, caravan park, hotels, access to World Heritage Listed walks in the Misty Mountain Trails - all make this a region to take your time and discover for yourself.



The Great Tropical Drive

The Great Tropical Drive is a self drive touring route that includes some of Australia's best-known attractions - the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest, Hinchinbrook Island, the goldmining city of Charters Towers, the tropical tablelands and outback regions of North Queensland.

The major drive is a route from Cairns south to Townsville inland through the outback in the goldfields and back north through the tropical tablelands to Cooktown and the Daintree, before heading back down the coast to Cairns.

The Great Tropical Drive covers some 2079 km requiring at least 12 days to complete, and includes some 13 discovery trails offering unique experiences for those wanting to explore specific locations. Whether you are travelling in a car, four-wheel-drive or campervan, be prepared for unexpected discoveries as you travel and to experience the laid-back tropical lifestyle that is North Queensland.



The Great Green Way

Taking in the area from Cairns to Townsville, the Great Green Way includes the World Heritage listed Wet Tropics Rainforests and Great Barrier Reef, as well as over 12 mainland National Parks and over 25 tropical islands.

It includes the cities of Cairns, Thuringowa and Townsville along with the shires of Johnstone Cardwell and Hinchinbrook. It showcases the relaxed North Queensland lifestyle where you can still have a yarn with locals in an old Queensland pub and where farming and fishing is still the dominant way of life.

Along with its outstanding natural attractions the area has a diverse cultural history from the ancient myths and legends of the first Australians to the Europeans and Asians who arrived over the past 150 years to seek their fortunes cutting cane and digging for gold.

The Great Green Way is a key section of North Queensland's Great Tropical Drive.



Kurrimine Beach

Kurrimine Beach is hidden away from travellers and tourists - so that is a perfect reason to visit. It is located just down the road from Murdering Point Winery and is a popular place for anyone into fishing, birdwatching or just wanting to wander along exploring the many kilometres of beach. A large reef (King Reef) extends out from the beach for over 200 meters, making it an ideal fishing location and attracting a wide range of seabirds.

Along the beachfront, accommodation includes caravan parks, cabins, motel accommodation and holiday houses. Kurrimine is untouched by major development and sustains the old-world flavour of the tropical north with larrikins and personalities aplenty. It is a very laid back place, and is good if you want to get away from the hype of the city.
