    You are here...


    Dunk is a continental island located in the waters of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, which is a World Heritage Area. The island consists of 730 hectares of National Park plus 240 ha. occupied by Dunk Island Resort and a small farm.

    The Island's green-clad slopes rise gently from golden sand beaches and crystal blue sea to the modest 271 metre high Mt Kootaloo. Despite its relatively low profile the island receives enough rain to support prolific vegetation.

    Thirteen kilometres of walking track encourages exploration of most of the island's many habitats and provide an introduction to some of its diversity of animal life. The walks in the National park are very beautiful. All the walking trails start this side of the resort and there are signs that lead you to the walking tracks. As you go through the Resort please keep to the walking tracks.

    The walk from the jetty to the Swinging Bridge will take you 15-20 minutes. If you are more energetic you can continue up to the top of Mt Kootaloo that large mountain there is a viewing platform and you can get some magnificent views of the islands and the surrounding areas.From the jetty to the top of Kootaloo and back to the jetty is a return trip of about 2 hours.

    snorkelling on the great barrier reef

    You really must go on a boat trip to the reef and go snorkelling. It was awesome, totally different and one to tick off the list. You can get the boat from Dunk Island pier and costs roughly £40-£50 for family of four. Training is given and the crew go all out to make sure you have a fantastic day. brilliant!!!!
