Fitzroy Island resort offers 4 star luxury beachside studios, 1 & 2 bedroom apartments on beautiful Fitzroy island with stunning views of the Coral Sea.
Fitzroy Island is a 45 minute ferry ride (about 30kms) from Cairns in Queensland, and is surrounded by a reef system that forms part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, making it the perfect accessible base for snorkelling, diving and exploring the reef. Idyllic white sandy beaches lead into the safe, sheltered waters, which are also ideal for swimming and water sports as well as yachting and boating. 97 percent of the four square kilometre continental island is National Park, covered in tropical rainforest and freely accessible to the public via an established network of walking tracks. The gentle, hilly terrain inland makes for great walking throughout the whole island, including to the two main beaches, the highest vantage point on the island and the lighthouse at the Eastern end.
Fitzroy Island is the perfect spot to visit the Great Barrier Reef from Cairns, and it's a great land based alternative to the Barrier Reef pontoon experience. You can swim and snorkel in safety off the iconic white sandy beaches, exploring this World Heritage Listed coral reef system at your own pace. Make friends with the sea life, including fish, turtles, dolphins and even whales. Have some fun on the water as well as in it, with activities including paddle boat hire and a water trampoline. A sheltered passage from Cairns and secure moorings make Fitzroy Island an ideal destination for day trips on your own boat or yacht.

Get Back to Nature - Walking and Exploring
Explore the bush walking tracks throughout the island, like the Lighthouse and Summit walks, with views all the way to the Barrier Reef. Trek to magic spots like Secret Garden and Nuddy Beach, one of Far North Queensland's most iconic beaches.
The Island was converted into a military base during World War II to protect Australia's mainland from invasion. Most of the walking trails were formed during this time, hence their access to some of the best vantage points in the region, although these days visitors are only on the lookout for the stunning views.
Discover Fitzroy Island's peaks, valleys, rainforests, coral beaches, crystal clear springs, birds and wildlife; and make sure you don't miss our sunrise and sunset views across to the untouched coastline of Far North Queensland.
Escape and Unwind on the Beach
As snorkelling and swimming, there is plenty to do around Fitzroy Island's beaches whether your aim is to relax or get adventurous. This includes fishing, whale watching (between July & September) or just watching the stars by firelight at night.
