The Family Islands National Park is located along the north western coast of Australia, neighbouring the Great Barrier Reef. The National Park consists of mainly the 7 main islands of the Family Islands, and the surrounding smaller islands. Most of the park is kept in its natural state for small parts of the two largest islands, Dunk and Bedarra Island, which have resorts on them.
Dunk Island has a large amount of green cover providing plenty of space for trekking and camping. You will find that the island has beautiful plant life, exotic wildlife and a moderate climate perfect for hiking and camping. The island has fresh water springs which fill up pools, reservoir and swimming pools. The islands have beautiful beaches and large coral reefs which are perfect for snorkelling. Hot air ballooning, sky diving and jet skiing are available in the resorts not to mention the cafes, restaurants and nightclubs that are located in the resorts.
Speed boat and helicopter rides are also available on both islands. Transportation to the other smaller islands are available, however, only two visits a week are allowed on the smaller islands, so as to preserve the ecology of the islands. You can also visit the Great Barrier Reef, and witness its awe-inspiring beauty. However, for those who value privacy and a romantic experience, Bedarra Island is the most romantic honeymoon destination you can find in the national park and Australia..
