Dangar Island is a popular destination for day trips and weekends away. With no cars on the island it's a great place for kids and adults to roam: across the island, up the hill, through the bush, around the rocks and through the shallows of Bradley's Beach.

 

The Dangar Island Depot Cafe is open from 8-4, 7 days and the Bowling Club is open for Dinner Thurs-Sat and Lunch on Sat-Sun.
