The Great Barrier Reef is formed of thousands of unique, breathtaking 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, Fitzroy Island 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 expect beautiful views before we spend up to 6 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 self guided bushwalks, hiring a kayak or SUP or booking a guided snorkel tour. And if you also want to enjoy a glass bottom boat tour plus hire your own snorkel gear for the day, you can do so. Just add the upgrade to your booking and you’re ready to rock, snorkel and swim! Or just laze about on the stunning beaches and relax amongst the tropical surrounds. In the afternoon, we’ll take you back to Cairns via the scenic route through the Great Barrier Reef.
You can enjoy many other activities on the island. Book these once on board the ferry (own expense and payable on the ferry)
You can either make your own way to the Cairns Marlin Marina or be picked up from Cairns City or Northern Beaches locations.
