We visited Dunk Island based on advice from a Mission Beach tour company as the snorkeling was excellent at Muggy Muggy Beach. The walk along the beach from the Jetty is very long and on sand, you can't walk in the closed resort boundary making it a hard slog. The walk from the beach through the rain forest is quite...

Dunk Island was once an upmarket and lively tropical resort, that unfortunately has been devastated by 2 recent cyclones. The result is that the resort and eateries have been destroyed and up to mid 2015 shows no sign of re-opening. However the good news is that a new cafe - The Jetty Cafe has been established and is open on... More

Beautiful place and looks good what they have done to rebuild . The only bad thing was the drunken staff member on Anzac day urinating and swearing in front of guests at the beach bar . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . .. . . ..... More

There isn's a spot to review the Dunk Island Campground so I am doing it here. If TA ever adds an entry for the campground they can move this review there. I'm sure there may be other people who would be interested in information on camping on Dunk. The resort is no longer open due to the damage by cyclone... More

20 years ago I won a competition and the prize was an all expenses paid, dream trip to Dunk Island via Singapore. I had never heard of the place and most people reacted with "You where? Oh! right!" as though I was making up the name. To get to it, you had to take a small plane from Cairns to... More

I worked on Dunk Island 17 yrs ago and just had to go back and see what it was like now. Obviously with cyclone Yasi destroying it, it is still a beautiful island to visit. The water taxi ride is only 10 min from Mission Beach and then you step right into paradise. I walked around to Muggy Muggy Bay,... More
