Nice morning with young family

As a young family we set out to Dunk Island not knowing much about it apart from that it was hit by Cyclone Yasi a few years back. It's a beautiful island however the empty, ruined resort is quite an eye opener. We spent an hour on the beach out the front and it was very peaceful. The public bathroom/shower facilities were very handy. There's not much there apart from the tranquility. Please not this is nearly two hours south of Cairns. We searched for this in the Cairns area (my fault for not investigating more). We arrived 5 minutes before departure time and were ridiculed for being late and told to hurry up despite having a one year old in the car. Very stressful situation given the terrible slow drivers on the highway on the way down. I'm not sure what all the fuss was about because everyone else seem very laid back and there seemed to be no reason why everything was so stressful. I must say once the dust settled that one person turned out to be delightful!

Hi James, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I am very sorry you feel you were ridiculed. We do try and operate on time so others don't miss out and I'm sure we would have helped with your things to get you onboard :) So pleased you enjoyed Dunk Island, it's where families get to BE families and enjoy the company of others away from the mainland and all of it's mod cons etc... We look forward to welcoming you back again.... Kind Regards Nancy

Great experience

Quick, easy service over to Dunk. The island is so much more beautiful without the droves of resort tourists. Would definitely recommend doing & using the taxi service.

Taxi to Dunk.

Sweetly swift service to a very peaceful place. Dunk Island, where nature’s fury still obvious. I could hear Yasi howling while looking @the resort.
