Dunk Island is a tropical paradise and nature lovers playground, mostly covered in a national park and offering a range of stunning walking trails and palm-fringed beaches.

This tour departs Cairns by coach on a scenic journey to Cassowary Coast & Mission Beach where you'll board our QuickCoast ferry and enjoy a range of delicious complimentary muffins, fruit salad, and tea/coffee/juice.

Upon arrival at Dunk Island you'll have the opportunity to soak up its beauty by your choice of either a challenging hike, or more relaxing walk along Pallon Beach.

For the adventurous, your 7km hike to Mount Kootaloo passes through ancient fern forests, ironbark groves, and a World War II radar station, reaching the island's highest point with breathtaking panoramic views of the islands. This 3-4 hour round trip takes you through the enchanting Palm Valley and leads you to the serene Coconut Beach.

For those seeking an easier hike, a delightful walk along Pallon Beach, featuring a lookout and the old farm, is highly recommended. You can also visit Muggy Muggy Beach to relax, take a dip and try some snorkeling if you choose!

Once we depart Dunk Island, you'll be transferred to Porters Promenade where Shops, bars and eateries are open for a beachside sunset dinner at your own expense - the perfect way to end the day!
