The Great Barrier Reef is formed of thousands of unique, breath-taking islands, and Fitzroy Island is one of them. This national park is predominantly covered in sprawling tropical rainforest that leads down onto shores that flank the Great Barrier Reef itself. At just a 45-minute cruise from Cairns, it makes for the perfect day trip, where you can marvel at the beauty of this natural wonder and try out some adventurous pursuits.
The beaches are one of the best parts of the island, and our day-long tour will give you ample opportunity to feel the sand between your toes and gaze out at the stunning backdrop of the Great Barrier Reef beyond. Elsewhere, there are untouched forests just waiting to be explored and a range of activities, like snorkelling, hiking, and swimming in the shallows.
We start the day by travelling to the island on an air-conditioned catamaran. On the way, you can tuck into free tea and coffee, before we spend five hours exploring Fitzroy Island and everything it has to offer. Throughout the day, you can snorkel the fringing reef which sits just metres from the pristine beach, take a self-guided walk through the central rainforests, or take part in one of the numerous other adventures that await you on the shore.
These include bushwalking, hiring a kayak or SUP and visiting the Turtle Rehabilitation Centre. Or just laze about on the stunning beaches and relax amongst the tropical surrounds. We’ll then take you back to Cairns via the scenic route through the Great Barrier Reef.
