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 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.

I actually did not get to ride the Fitzroy Ferry because it was fully booked. Gene was wonderful in helping me get passage on Raging Thunder ferry to Fitzroy Island. Gene responded quickly and booked my passage for me. Thank you for all your help! I had a fantastic trip!
