Must see · National Park · Nature / Park
Take a glass-bottom boat tour of Fitzroy Island National Park to see a fringing reef well known for its huge variety of coral and fish. Much of the protected island is off-limits to visitors, but you can visit the sheltered western side, where a jetty and several snorkeling areas can be found. A walking trail on the northern end of the island can take you to its tallest peak, offering 360-degree views over the surrounding reefs and Cape Grafton. On clear sunny days, it's possible to make out the Frankland Islands to the south. Along the trail, which leads through a verdant rain forest teeming with wildlife, you can access the pristine Nudey Beach, which is no longer a nudist beach, despite its name.
