Full description
Fitzroy Island was once part of mainland Australia, before being separated by rising waters. Over time a fringing coral reef surrounded the island, providing sheltered home to a variety of fish and coral species.

Explore this marine wonderland on a full-day tour from Cairns, crossing by ferry to enjoy the wilderness hiking trails, snorkeling adventures, and more. The tour is available in a range of packages to suit the entire family, including transfers only for you to explore on your own, or a package tour that includes a picnic lunch and snorkel or glass bottom boat activities.

Explore the Island's 339 hectares of lush rainforest that covers 94 percent of the island and is protected and managed as a National Park. Walking trails are suitable for all levels of fitness, allowing you to explore areas of the island at your leisure.

The fast catamaran departs from the Marlin Marina, with check-in at the Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal. Cruise south along the calm waters of the coastline to reach Fitzroy Island in just 45 minutes, giving you up to 7 hours to explore the tropical island.

Head to the beach hire hut to take advantage of a range of snorkeling gear and snorkel direct from the beach. Or go on a glass bottom boat tour to see the marine life in comfort. You can also hire a paddle ski to explore Welcome Bay.
