About Fitzroy Island
Fitzroy Island is only 45 minutes from Cairns and is one of the most popular islands on the Great Barrier Reef.

Being a continental island, it is large and covered with lush, pristine rainforest.  Adventurous hikers will enjoy the National Park rainforest walking tracks, including a hike to the lighthouse and summit circuit.  From here discover breathtaking views of the island and surrounding reefs.  There is also a shorter hiking trail to Nudey Beach and a secret garden track as  well as numerous water sports options.

Spend the day snorkelling the fringing coral reefs, where tropical fish present a rainbow of colour.  It's as easy as stepping off the beach.

We had a great time at Fitzroy Island. Nudey Beach was spectacular. The food for lunch was nice, a bit expensive but you would expect that on an island.

The only thing we would suggest is better signage to direct you to access the different beaches eg Nudey Beach. The signage was rather poor.

It was a rough trip across with waves crashing on the sides. But the boat pushed its way through them well and the crew were terrific, especially for a group of three who found the waves and weather challenging. On a practical note, the booking was easy, on-line, and the boat left on time at both endss of our day trip.

We had the boat to ourselves and it was great fun sitting on the top deck wind in your hair

Took the Fitzroy Island day package and had a great day. More than enough activities to fill the day, so much in fact will have to go back.
