What you can expect

Set out on a day trip from Cairns to explore Dunk Island, home to over 100 species of birds, reptiles, and marine mammals. On this popular island, you'll find a huge national park with lush walking trails and picturesque beaches. Hang out at Muggy Muggy Beach for a swim and snorkel or tackle Mount Kootallo with its 7km round-trip hike through an ancient forest past a WWII radar station before reaching the breathtaking views of the surrounding islands. If you would like to opt for a gentler exploration, try the circuit track, a 3-4 hour trek through Palm Valley and Coconut Beach. With breakfast, lunch, and transfers included, all you have to do is hop on and enjoy all that Dunk Island has to offer.
