Dunk Island

Dunk Island, the largest of the Family Islands, was known to the first inhabitants as ‘Coonanglebah’ – the Island of Peace and Plenty. Today, Dunk continues to be Australia’s most beautiful rainforest island.

Located 120 kilometres south of Cairns, most of the island is National Park, with unique tracts of virgin rainforests, sweeping arcs of golden sand and turquoise seas.

Guests visiting Dunk Island will gain an immediate sense of being in a tropical paradise delighting in the perfect harmony created by balancing rainforest views with vistas of brilliant blue sky.

Dunk offers an enormous variety of activities. Rainforest walks allow visitors to take in the spectacular views from the summit of Mt Kootaloo. Other activities on offer are guided round island jet ski tours, snorkelling over bommies at Naturalist Beach, tennis, parasailing, squash…the list is endless. There are also day trips available to the Great Barrier Reef, an Artists’ Colony, Spa treatments, horse riding on the beach, and fishing!

Most importantly Dunk Island is a haven of tranquillity, relaxation and beauty.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
