Dunk Island is a careful mixture of tourism and national parkland. There is one resort and visitors spend their time inspecting the reef or wandering around the island’s tracks, which include a fascinating path (which starts at the back of the Dunk Island Resort) that crosses a suspension bridge and continues on to Mount Koo-Tal-Oo Lookout revealing a postcard view across the palm-fringed beach to distant islands,

Dunk Island over the years has acquired the title – Australia’s most beautiful tropical rainforest island, and its easy to see why. With exclusive virgin rainforests, sweeping arcs of golden sands, turquoise seas and thriving tropical gardens, everything about Dunk Island says beauty, casual style and pure enjoyment.
