Family Islands National Park

Mission Beach, Cassowary Coast Area

This park features a chain of scenic continental islands, close to the Wet Tropics coast near Mission Beach. Clad in lush rainforest and woodlands and surrounded by coral reefs, tidal flats and sandy beaches, the islands were home to the original 'beachcomber', E.J. Banfield. The islands are part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage area. The most accessible of the Family Islands is Dunk Island.

On Dunk Island, take an easy stroll through the rainforest to a secluded beach or embark on a climb to the summit of Mount Kootaloo for scenic reef and mainland views. Near the lookout, discover the remains of a World War II radar station. Continue on the Island circuit walk and stop to relax at Coconut Beach under the shade of the calophyllum trees. Go birdwatching and butterfly spotting along the walking tracks. Don mask and snorkel to explore the fringing reef from Muggy Muggy beach. Camp in the popular Dunk Island Spit camping area or get away from it all and bush camp on the more secluded Wheeler or Coombe island.
