About Ellis Beach

Lying beside the Coral Sea, Ellis is a beach in Tropical north Queensland. It is a home to a surf life saving club which organizes regular events and competitions throughout the year. Ellis Beach is named after Dick Ellis who was a shot firer for the New Queensland department of main roads. When he lost his hand in an accident, the state government built him a house on this beach. He tended and created a mango garden which still exists.

One has to be careful of stingers here during the months of November to May, though there are patrols who make sure of safety standards. This beach was also featured in the fourth season of the amazing race. It is famous for its pumice stones which line the shore. Many revelers can be seen collecting them as it is a major hobby cultivated by the locals. The food available is said to be some of the best in Cairns.



Location: It is located 31 km North of Cairns

Highlights: The specialty of the Ellis Beach is the beautiful pumice stones found along the shore.

Best time to visit: September to November, March to May.
