Dunk Island - Queensland

Dunk Island - The Isle of peace and plenty

Part of the Family Group of Islands, and one of the most tropical on the Barrier Reef in terms of its lush vegetation, Dunk Island is about 160 km (100 miles) north of Townsville and 120 km (75 miles) south of Cairns. A birdwatcher's paradise, Dunk Island is also the home of the stunning Ulysser Butterfly, which is the island's symbol.

A catamaran operates daily to the outer reef just 50 minutes away. At Beaver Cay you can snorkel or view coral gardens and marine life from a glass bottomed boat or semi-submersible craft. The scuba diving is fantastic. The fishing around the island is great or charter a boat for the big ones. Spanish Mackerel and Barracuda are plentiful as are Coral Trout, Sweet Lip and Trevally.

How to get to Dunk Island.
You have a choice of options. There are daily flights from Townsville and Cairns or travel by launch operating from Mission Beach. A regular ferry operates from Clump Point Jetty and water taxis operate from South Mission Beach and Wongalina Beach.
