Introducing Dunk Island
Dunk is known to the Djiru Aboriginal people as Coonanglebah (the island of peace and plenty). They're not wrong: this is pretty much your ideal tropical island, with lush jungle, white sand beaches and impossibly blue water.
Walking trails crisscross (and almost circumnavigate) Dunk: the circuit track (9.2km) is the best way to have a proper stickybeak at the island's interior and abundant wildlife. There’s good snorkelling over bommies at Muggy Muggy and great swimming at Coconut Beach.
The island's resort is currently closed due to cyclone damage, though camping has reopened. BYO supplies.
Mission Beach Dunk Island Water Taxi, departing from Wongaling Beach, makes the 20-minute trip to Dunk Island.
