Dunk Island Resort, Dunk Island

At Dunk Island Resort, the palm-fringed beaches and lush rainforests of this tropical island are ideal for those who want to enjoy time out or the time of their lives. The resort is located in a National Park and within easy reach of the Great Barrier Reef. This island of peace and plenty offers an amazing variety of activities, facilities and experiences.

All rooms are well-appointed with four grades of accommodation, each with beach or tropical garden views. The daily tariff includes breakfast, a set three course or buffet dinner with a tempting array of dining choices, as well as many island activities.

For a family holiday, there are heaps of things to do together, but when Mum and Dad want some time out, the Kids Club gives three to 12 year olds plenty to do. For couples looking for romance, nothing compares to ending the day with a cocktail in hand, watching the perfect sunset.

With so many amazing activities to choose from, it’s hard to decide what to do next. Horse riding along the beach, rainforest walks, catamarans, tandem sky diving, golf, or visiting the Island Farm. For a change of pace, get away from it all to a sun-soaked beach with a gourmet picnic hamper, or indulge yourself at the Spa of Peace and Plenty, with treatments designed to rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.
