Dorrie's Island is the third world in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. It's a tropical island which later turns into a forest. It is represented by a Cheep Cheep underwater.

Its tower boss is Bowser Jr. and its castle boss is Cheepskipper.


Dorrie's Island is initially a beach-themed world, though after Palmthorn Beach, the world becomes mostly forests. It is heavily inspired by Yoshi's Island from Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii and World 3 from New Super Mario Bros. 2.

Dorrie's Island can only be accessed through completing Flameburst Flotilla in Crystal Sewers. Completion of Overgrown Armoury grants access to Pumpkin Thornhill in Pumpkin Boneyard. Completion of The House of Blocks' secret exit grants access to World 3-Cannon.png, leading to Lavender Skybridge in Cirrus Heavens.
