Fitzroy Island National Park, Cairns Reviews
Island is still beautiful with wall trails and pristine beaches, Shame its not as I remembered, now the resort is there,it is very pricey and only limited time frames that the kitchen is open for food or u can get a dry sandwich or rock hard sausage roll from the shop/deli. Recommend taking own picnic bbq and LOTS of drinking water.
Excellent location brilliantly clear water great for snorkelling / diving or swimming. Fitzroy Island also has an exclusive guest resort for overnight visitor's and separate bar and restaurant for day trippers. Fabulous food and refreshments at great prices. Beach hire equipment is also available at this remarkable location. Family friendly all round with very hospitable and friendly staff. Highly recommended
Camped there for 4 nights. Shared with the campground with a max of 2 other tents per night. Spacious campground. Showers, toilets and bbq shared with day trippers. Crystal clear, calm sea just 100m from campground. You can fall asleep to the sounds of the waves, plus some rather loud insects. The Summit track starts right at the corner of the camping ground. An hour climb to the top... an unforgiving amount of steps! But amazing views of the other side of the island. You can turn it into a loop by continuing roundand returning via the Lighthouse track which will be steep downhill.
I don’t want to say much about this place as it is one of my most favourite places to go and I don’t want it spoilt with loads more people coming but I understand tourism is what keeps it strong. Hiking to the lighthouse, snorkeling diving standup paddleboard, drinking at Foxys bar or just lazing on the coral beach 🏖 sounds tough right!
Just fantastic. Quiet, and relatively unspoilt. Superb resort.
