Create an itinerary including Fitzroy Island National 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.

  • A nice 45 minute ferry ride from Cairns. The friendliest staff and a very relaxed island to just relax. You can literally snorkel with Turtle's straight of the beach. And the summit walk is awesome. And don't forget to book a tour at the turtle Rehabilitation centre.
  • Awesome experience wonderful gift birthday from my partner. Thank you
