About Fitzroy Island
Fitzroy Island is only 45 minutes from Cairns and is one of the most popular islands on the Great Barrier Reef.
Being a continental island, it is large and covered with lush, pristine rainforest. Adventurous hikers will enjoy the National Park rainforest walking tracks, including a hike to the lighthouse and summit circuit. From here discover breathtaking views of the island and surrounding reefs. There is also a shorter hiking trail to Nudey Beach and a secret garden track as well as numerous water sports options.
Spend the day snorkelling the fringing coral reefs, where tropical fish present a rainbow of colour. It's as easy as stepping off the beach.
Nudey Beach was spectacular
We had a great time at Fitzroy Island. Nudey Beach was spectacular. The food for lunch was nice, a bit expensive but you would expect that on an island.
The only thing we would suggest is better signage to direct you to access the different beaches eg Nudey Beach. The signage was rather poor.

The crew were terrific,
It was a rough trip across with waves crashing on the sides. But the boat pushed its way through them well and the crew were terrific, especially for a group of three who found the waves and weather challenging. On a practical note, the booking was easy, on-line, and the boat left on time at both endss of our day trip.

I had a fantastic trip!
I actually did not get to ride the Fitzroy Ferry because it was fully booked. Gene was wonderful in helping me get passage on Raging Thunder ferry to Fitzroy Island. Gene responded quickly and booked my passage for me. Thank you for all your help! I had a fantastic trip!

Had such a good time at Fitzroy Island that went back again two days latter. The Ferry was looking a bit tired and in need of a refit but the staff where fantastic. The fact that the reef is just meters of the beach is fantastic and swimming with sea turtles was amazing!

I just cant say enough about the service from Travstar.com. The site was very easy to use, the information from the consultant when I spoke with her was precise and informative. The trip to Fitzroy was very easy. We had a great day with perfect weather. We climbed the mountain and took photos, went snorkling on the low tide - lovely coral gardens just off the beach around the rocks to nudy beach. Water was clear and temperature was perfect.

Thank you so much for a brilliant day.
The team from Raging Thunder that led the ferry and our activities for the day are an absolute asset to the business. They were competent, friendly and hilarious. Thank you so much for a brilliant day.

It is a beautiful island
It is a beautiful island with less tourists interruption. the facility provided on the island is pretty basic, however, we really enjoyed the time and loved the coral / fish / sea. Strongly recommend.
