    Dunk Island owns the only 18 hole island golf course in Australia. Open since July 2003.

    As a National Park within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, Dunk Island's golf course had to meet stringent environmental guidelines. This golfing course makes clever use of topography and was created without major earthworks or extensive planting of imported grasses.

    During your game you will be rewarded by spectacular Coral Sea and Island views. A good excuse in case of bad shoot ;-)

    2005 prices:
    A round of golf on Dunk Island will cost $30.00 for eighteen holes or $15.00 for nine holes. Dunk Island is carrying a good range of golf clubs for hire at $10.00 per round. Golf balls are available for purchase.
