Fitzroy Island National Park, Fitzroy Island

4.4
#27 of 232 in Nature in Queensland
Take a glass-bottom boat tour of Fitzroy Island National Park to see a fringing reef well known for its huge variety of coral and fish. Much of the protected island is off-limits to visitors, but you can visit the sheltered western side, where a jetty and several snorkeling areas can be found. A walking trail on the northern end of the island can take you to its tallest peak, offering 360-degree views over the surrounding reefs and Cape Grafton. On clear sunny days, it's possible to make out the Frankland Islands to the south. Along the trail, which leads through a verdant rain forest teeming with wildlife, you can access the pristine Nudey Beach, which is no longer a nudist beach, despite its name.

  • Island is still beautiful with wall trails and pristine beaches, Shame its not as I remembered, now the resort is there,it is very pricey and only limited time frames that the kitchen is open for food or u can get a dry sandwich or rock hard sausage roll from the shop/deli. Recommend taking own picnic bbq and LOTS of drinking water.
  • Excellent location brilliantly clear water great for snorkelling / diving or swimming. Fitzroy Island also has an exclusive guest resort for overnight visitor's and separate bar and restaurant for day trippers. Fabulous food and refreshments at great prices. Beach hire equipment is also available at this remarkable location. Family friendly all round with very hospitable and friendly staff. Highly recommended
  • The perfect way to spend a relaxing day in the most beautiful surrounds.
  • Camped there for 4 nights. Shared with the campground with a max of 2 other tents per night. Spacious campground. Showers, toilets and bbq shared with day trippers. Crystal clear, calm sea just 100m from campground. You can fall asleep to the sounds of the waves, plus some rather loud insects. The Summit track starts right at the corner of the camping ground. An hour climb to the top... an unforgiving amount of steps! But amazing views of the other side of the island. You can turn it into a loop by continuing roundand returning via the Lighthouse track which will be steep downhill.
  • Just fantastic. Quiet, and relatively unspoilt. Superb resort.
