Dunk Island is a National Park - please leave everything as you found it.

Take all your rubbish with you, there is no rubbish collection on the island.

Do not feed wildlife—it can affect the natural population balance.

Leave your pets at home—domestic animals are not permitted in national parks or intertidal zones.

Bring a fuel or gas stove for cooking.

Please stay on the walking tracks at all times—shortcutting damages vegetation and causes erosion.

The resort lease area including buildings and the airstrip are private property and access is not allowed.

Dunk Island (Queensland, Australia) is located approx 4 km (2,5 ml) off the town of Mission Beach.


The island is part of the Family Islands National Park. It is also part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

Dunk Island is surrounded by coral reefs. During WW2 (1939-1945), it was used by the Royal Australian Air Force.


Today the island is a popular resort destination, featuring sandy beaches, rocky shores, and over 100 species of birds, reptiles and marine mammals.

about Dunk'


things to do

Hiking and Walking

There are two trails leading from the camp site deeper into the Dunk Island rainforest past the abandoned resort.

The island circuit track takes three hours and takes you 11 kilometres up to the top of Mount Kataloo and then back around the island.

You can also take the shorter 20 minute walk to Muggy Muggy beach.

Swimming and Snorkeling

Muggy Muggy beach is around the corner from the main resort beach on Brammo Bay. This is a quiet, secluded beach perfect for family swimming and snorkelling. 

The Sand Spit is a picturesque sand bar and one of the best places to swim on the island. There are no rocks and the turquoise water is beautifully clear. It is also a few steps from the camping ground.

The main pier at Brammo Bay is also a great place to jump, dive, swim and explore. 

Sailing & Kayaking

Brammo Bay is the main anchorage on Dunk Island and there are three guest mooring buoys operated by Queensland Parks. 

There is amazing fishing around the island and you can also explore, by boat or kayak, nearby Mound Island (Purtaboi). However this little rocky island is closed from 1 October - 31 March due to bird nesting. 


Tropical Beach

Take care on loose, slippery and uneven walking track surfaces, particularly in wet conditions.

Hiking Boots

Always carry water, wear hats and sturdy footwear and try to walk in the cooler part of the day.​


Wear sunscreen and cover up when you are swimming or snorkelling.
