#74 of 76 in Wildlife in Cairns
For the perfect island stay you can't go past Fitzroy Island. With a world class resort catering for all budgets from 1st class to backpackers and with a well established campground you will find it hard to beat. Only a lazy hour journey from Cairns by boat to this idyllic tropical getaway, you will be amazed by this hidden gem from the moment you hit the wharf.

To fill those sun soaked days before you visit the bar we provide a full range of water based activities suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. No matter if you wish to stay dry and see the reef by glass bottom boat, paddle one of our reef viewing kayaks, practise your balancing skills on one of our SUP's or immerse yourself on a snorkel and dive expedition there is an option to suit you.

Be one of the lucky non-divers to experience the reef by night as we put our Glass Bottom night coral & marine life viewing vessel into operation. You will not find this option on many islands or trips around the world.

From Fitzroy Island, your now half way to the True Outer Great Barrier Reef, why not come out all the way and see the beauty of the 8th wonder of the world. Sunkist visits Fitzroy daily on its way to and from the Outer Edge.

  • We had picked up and paid for stingersuits and snorkelling equipment (only for 1 person) for 3 days, but then returned on the 2nd day due to bad weather and minor injuries to the toes. There was no refund of the AUS's 150 because we changed our minds. Let's find it a bit of a pity, because we had already paid a tour for over AUS 500. The view on the beach of Fitzroy Island is ok only in sunshine and calm weather, but we had wind and rain. The Sunkist Tour was well organized for the divers, snorkelers should not be beginners. Stormy boat trip, absolutely take something with you with seasickness.
