Welcome to Dunk Island
Walking trails criss-cross (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 snorkelling over bommies (coral pinnacles or outcroppings) at Muggy Muggy and great swimming at truly beautiful Coconut Beach. On weekends in high season there are often special events such as bongo lessons or a ukulele band – check with the Mission Beach Visitor Centre.
Dunk Island was hammered by Cyclone Yasi in 2011, but has since mostly recovered, although part of the old resort remains off limits and a veritable eyesore.
