Whether you walk to the Summit and Lighthouse or snorkel in the crystal clear water this National Park is absolutely beautiful. Not to be missed if traveling through Cairns.

A beautiful island, but treat yourself and stay a night or 4 and really take in all it has to offer!

Did a day tour to Fitzroy Island. Make sure you bring appropriate footwear to enable you to swim and get around. Paths and beaches are not sand and coral rips your feet apart as I unfortunately found out.

A beautiful place for relaxing not much else to do for anyone not wanting to dive and snorkel. I had a lovely trip on the reef. Food disappointing on the boat.

A fairly unspoiled island. Plenty of walks and swimming. Walk to the summit is quite taxing and back down via the lighthouse steep. Rewarding to do though. Walk across to Nudey Beach is over rocks too. Lovely visit

We weren't sure we could fill in a full day on the island, but packed a lunch in our backpacks and took the 8am ferry. On arrival we set off on the walk to Nudey beach and as were there early, it was practically deserted....More

Beautiful scenery and peaceful. Easy 45 minute boat trip from Cairns and then had a few hours to explore and swim. My hubby swam with a turtle and saw some amazing fish. All staff were most helpful and the facilities were good. We took our...More

You can camp, not sure who you contact. Probably Queensland Parks. When we were there in July the camping ground wasn't to busy. It's small but they are building cabins. Facilities looked clean and it's just next to the... More
