Visit Mission Beach's hidden gem - Dunk Island. Explore hiking trails, swim at secluded beaches, meet local wildlife and take in all Dunk Island has to offer.
Calling all nature lovers to join us for a day exploring Dunk Island.
Dunk Island is one of Mission Beach’s hidden gems filled with a unique landscape of tropical rainforest, rocky coastlines, hilly terrain and secluded beaches. Although the resort remains closed after it was devastated by Cyclone Yasi, there is still beauty to be explored and enjoyed on the island.
Dunk Island is brimming with beautiful walks that will take you to breathtaking views of the ocean, island, and more. The climb up Mt Kootaloo is highly recommended as it will take you through ancient fern forests and ironbark groves, past the rusty remains of a World War II radar station, and to the island's peak, where you will be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the family islands and their surrounds. Continue on through Palm Valley and along Coconut Beach before taking a well-deserved break.
If you’re an ocean lover, grab your snorkel gear, and make your way down the winding track through the rainforest, coastal forests and mangroves to Muggy Muggy Beach for a dip in pristine waters and an underwater exploration.
Dunk Island is home to a vast amount of local wildlife both on the island and in the sea. The local wildlife will be a sight to remember, with everything from turtles and dugongs to electric blue Ulysses butterflies.
Don’t wait to discover why this tropical island is referred to as "the island of peace and plenty."
Please remember lunch is not provided with this booking, you will need to bring your own lunch. On occasions there is a cafe/kiosk available on the island however opening days can not be guaranteed.
