About Fitzroy Island

As one of the Great Barrier Reef's most treasured jewels, Fitzroy Island is a must-go on your next trip to Far North Queensland. To start with, it's a classified national park – and a special one at that, where the rainforest extends right out to the coast and basically kisses the ocean. At only 30 kilometres from Cairns – a quick 45-minutes boat journey – the island's surreal turquoise waters, white sand and unspoilt rainforest can be enjoyed in half a day. Or, from uncrowded beaches and with the emerald-green nature as your backdrop, take a whole day to partake in snorkelling, diving or kayaking. Bushwalkers will enjoy the variety of trails – a highlight being the lighthouse summit; or if you're more of a chiller, simply lie on the beach and absorb the stunning scenery.

How far is it from Cairns?

Considered one of the most untouched islands in the whole Great Barrier Reef, all 339 hectares of Fitzroy Island are an oasis. In fact, 324 of those hectares – a whopping 97% – are protected as national park. Fitzroy Island is located on the Continental Shelf, and is super close to and accessible from Cairns – a 45-minute boat ride across 30 kilometres of sparkling sea. This makes snorkelling in warm, clear waters and hiking through tropical rainforest doable without even checking out of your Cairns accommodation! Take a day to check out the vibrant bouquets of coral and then stay for dinner and drinks, or arrive for an afternoon dive and sunset dinner before heading back to the mainland for the evening.

Things to do on Fitzroy Island

Fitzroy Island plays host to an array of activities, and is also loaded with dreamy spots to relax. Nudey Beach took out the top spot in Australia's Top 101 Beaches awards back in 2018, and with just one glance you can see why! The sand is white coral and the water is balmy, dotted with massive granite boulders and surrounded by magnificent vegetation. The Turtle Rehabilitation Centre and Ocean Trampoline just off Welcome Bay are sure to fill children with delight, and for more adventurous folk, there's are many intriguing diving areas to poke about in. The lighthouse walk is recommended by locals and sees strollers enjoy panoramic views of the island. No matter what you're after, you won't be disappointed by Fitzroy Island. From the easy access point of Cairns, check out our half-day return trips, or full-day trips for those travellers with a tad more time and energy!

How much does it cost to go to Fitzroy Island?

A trip to Fitzroy Island won't break the bank – and if you're interested in staying the night, you can even pop up a tent and camp. Tours are available to suit any budget, and offer many optional activities – such as snorkelling, diving and stand-up paddle boarding. For the kids, a visit to the Turtle Rehabilitation Centre is only $5.50 per child, and a jump on the Ocean Trampoline is $5 – making it a wallet-friendly way to help your little ones burn excess energy while you relax on the beach at Welcome Bay! Swimming, hiking up to the lighthouse and trekking through the rainforest are all, of course, free. Take full advantage of our brilliant deals at Experience Oz by jamming everything in on a half-day return trip from Cairns, or give yourself a bit more time to explore all areas of the island with our full-day return trip.

Is Fitzroy Island or Green Island Better?

Fitzroy Island and Green Island both capture the best of what Far North Queensland has to offer, and though they're alike in beauty, they're also slightly different. Fitzroy Island is quieter, sparser and a coveted favourite among locals – ideal for disconnecting from the buzz of everyday life and getting swept up in the calming beauty of nature. Green Island is smaller and easier to walk around, with more facilities and plenty of activities to partake in – perfect for families or those looking for more low-fuss travel. While at Fitzroy island, you can visit The Turtle Rehabilitation Centre or see panoramic views of the coral reef from the lighthouse summit. Green Island, however, boasts a crocodile park and glass-bottomed boat tours, where you can view all the wonders of the reef without even getting wet!
