National Park Nature / Park
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.

  • So beautiful. We went snorkeling and it was the most amazing experience. There was a little bit of bleaching in the coral but the fish we saw were beautiful. The view from the island was picture perfect.
  • Amazing place to go with the family. Lots of fun things to do like snorkeling, fishing, paddleboarding and swimming. Heaps to exotic fish to see. A must go place!
  • I would totally recommend Fitzroy island to anyone who wants a day trip while staying at Cairns. This place is gorgeous and there are a lot things to do. Snorkeling is wonderful near some of rocks, water was calm enough for me to learn paddling.
  • Amazing place to visit and stay. Beautiful views and activities to do. 🌅🌈🌫️
  • Beautiful island. Good for hiking or a beach day. Restaurants need improvement in terms of offer, vegetarian options and pricing. Apart from that a great day or weekend trip
