Beautiful Fitzroy Island is a quintessential island paradise, with sweeping untouched beaches, lush tropical rainforests and serene, clear waters.
At only a 45-minute boat ride from Cairns, a quick visit to the island is so easy; although, you’ll want to stay forever!
Activities like swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, glass bottom boat or semi-submersible tours, giant ocean trampolining, lighthouse and rainforest walks or a visit to the amazing turtle rehabilitation centre will keep you entertained while you soak up this wonderful paradise.
