Fitzroy Island National Park, Cairns Reviews

  • Amazing photography opportunities, and great views. Decently difficult walk to reach lighthouse and summit. Also a great location for snorkelling, diving and reed viewing. However, there is little else on Fitzroy Island besides these activities.

  • A great day trip from Cairns. It would be a great place to camp for a few days. Relaxed scenic tropical island views, lovely bush walks through the rainforest as well as phenomenal snorkeling & world class beaches! Worth the expensive ferry transfer

  • Nice place to visit for the day. The beaches have lots of broken coral, but the sand is nice. Snorkelling was a bit disappointing the day we went. Water was not clear and lots of dead coral. Did see nice fish and my son saw a turtle. The walk up to the summit was steep, but the view was worth it. We took our own food as the cost of food at the store was a bit pricey. Good place for a family to visit.

  • Beautiful experiance on a day with good weather ,hill climbs and snorkeling

  • Definitely good for 4 night stay as there are 4 walks to do one day snorkeling other day khyaking.
