The Queensland region

Greet Barrier Reef

Nowhere else on Queensland's palm fringed coast are you as close to the Great Barrier Reef, only 28 km east of Dunk Island. The original beachcomber EJ Banfield called the reef our coral gardens. It is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and the reef we see today is around 10,000 years old and continues to grow very slowly.. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest structure ever created on earth by living organisms. The GBR was declared a World Heritage Site in 1981.

Scattered throughout this entire area is an intricate maze of submerged reefs, beautiful coral cays and a large number of continental islands, most of which are surrounded by their own fringing reefs. Our islands were once mountain peaks on the coastline of Australia. When sea levels roe after the last Ice Age, islands like Bedarra and Dunk were formed and coral reefs have developed round many of them.

To see the most spectacular local marine life head out to Beaver and Taylor Reefs. Both have small, sandy coral cays where you can sunbath, picnic, swim or snorkel.

Our Islands

Pristine coral sandy beaches, with coves formed by giant granite boulders, and fringed with lush green jungle. There are thirteen islands of varying sizes and Dunk is the largest island within the Family Group of Islands. The continental type islands are made up of granite boulder formation and rise to moderately high rocky peaks, with steep granite escarpments on the northeasterly and southeasterly aspects

The islands are very similar in character apart from variations in size, Dunk, Bedarra and Wheeler Islands all have a permanent water supply.

The Sandspits.

They all have northwest sandspits on every isle because each island has a shelving sandspit at its northwestern corner giving them a family “resemblance”. These sandspits are one of the most attractive features of the group, offering ideal sheltered boat landings and deep water swimming at the lowest of tides. The sand is drawn out into a narrow spit by the wave action and sea currents from the prevailing sou'easters and nor'easters.

The Aboriginals lived, hunted and fished on these islands up until the beginning of this century. They traveled from island to island in bark canoes.

The islands are all National Parks apart from Bedarra, Timana and those areas of Dunk Island which are held as freehold land.

Climate

Bedarra enjoys daytime temperatures ranging from 23 degrees Celsius in the June / July winter months to 30 degrees Celsius in the December / January summer months. High rainfall from December to March can be expected due to the tropical nature of the island.

Bedarra Island

The Rainforests of our Wet Tropics

We are surrounded by the natural beauty of National Parks and it continually surprises and enthralls. Rainforest and ocean. A short walking track allows you to get back to nature, and experience our rainforest and secluded coves with stunning uninterrupted views of the ocean.

Bedarra Island lies in the heart of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, which stretches between Townsville and Cooktown on the north-east coast of Queensland. The wet tropics are home to 13 mammal species which are found nowhere else in the world. As well, platypus and wallaby are common species here. It is also home to a quarter of Australia's frogs, a third of the country's freshwater fish and almost half of Australia's birds – approximately 6370 species. Listen to the varied chant of happy frogs after rain.

In particular we have some of the largest remaining tracts of coastal lowland rainforest in North Queensland with many species of plants that are very interesting and enticing.
