Welcome to Dunk Island
Walking trails criss-cross (and almost circumnavigate) Dunk: the circuit track (9.2km) is the best way to explore the island's interior and encounter wildlife. There’s snorkelling over bommies (coral pinnacles or outcroppings) at Muggy Muggy and great swimming at 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 battered by Cyclone Yasi in 2011 and tourist infrastructure has yet to recover: there are no places to eat or, apart from the campground, sleep. As late as 2018 the old resort remained off limits and a real eyesore.
