The town of Kuala Dungun used to be Terengganu's second busiest port.  Kuala Dungun was at its best when iron ore from Bukit Besi were transported by railways to port.  When the iron was considered uneconomic to mine, the industry was closed down, since then Dungun turns into a sleepy hollow.  To date, Dungun is more known for its natural attractions such as the Chemerong Waterfall and also home to beautiful beaches.

Today, visitors can still marvel at the remnants of the tunnels, tin plants, the stockpile buildings, the chimneys of the processing plants, the pool, the manager's residence and parts of the rail tracks. To those looking for souvenirs, some raw, unprocessed iron-ore can still be found scattered on the ground, a stark reminder of one of the biggest iron-ore productions in the world.
