Only 45 minutes from Cairns, Fitzroy Island is a fantastic island to visit with beautiful beaches, clear water and lots of fun activities for all the family.
Fitzroy Island is one of 600 "Continental" or "High" islands on the Great Barrier Reef which means it used to be part of the mainland before rising waters separated this tranquil paradise. Over time a fringing coral reef surrounded the island, providing a sheltered home for a variety of fish and coral species.
Keeping to the calm waters of the coastline and passing spectacular scenery along the way, your ferry cruise to the island by fast catamaran takes just 45 minutes.
Once you arrive, this package gives you plenty of free time to explore the island. Activities on Fitzroy Island include kayaking, snorkelling, exploring the rainforest along many walking trails or just relaxing on the beautiful beaches.
