Welcome to Dunk Island

Set in the crystal azure waters of the Great Barrier Reef in far north Queensland, Dunk Island was once viewed as a crown jewel of Australian tourism before it was severely damaged by Cyclone Yasi in 2011.

Located just 4km from Mission Beach in the Cassowary Coast Region, the island covers 970 hectares of which two-thirds is declared National Park. The freehold development area features an airstrip, the Dunk Island Spit, camping facilities, walking tracks and a resort that has since been closed.

A once internationally acclaimed tourist destination, little work has gone into restoring this national treasure to its former status. Over time the rich treasures that Dunk has to offer – golden sandy beaches, tropical rainforests, walking tracks and breathtaking scenery – have been kept hidden from many Australian and international tourists.

It is with great privilege and respect that the Mayfair 101 Group, under its property division Mayfair Iconic Properties, has the opportunity to bring this piece of Australian heritage back to life with a multi-million dollar redevelopment plan that will turn the island into an iconic holiday destination for all the world to enjoy.

The Dunk Island Spit camp ground, day use area and Family Islands National Park are open for public use. Please see links above for bookings & details. All other areas including the resort, airport, pools & farm are private property and off limits, see the map below for more details.
