Directions

Fitzroy Island is a 45 minute Fast Cat ride (about 30kms) from Cairns in Queensland, and is surrounded by a reef system that forms part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, making it the perfect accessible base for snorkelling, diving and exploring the reef.  Idyllic white sandy beaches lead into the safe, sheltered waters, which are also ideal for swimming and water sports as well as yachting and boating.

Island Dimensions

  • Total Area 339 hectares (838 acres)
  • National Park Area 324 hectares (796 acres)
  • Summit Height 269 metres (882 feet)

Climate

Fitzroy enjoys a typical North Queensland tropical climate but with the added advantage of the cooling effects of the prevailing SE ocean breezes for the majority of the year. Temperatures range from 24 - 31 C (75 - 88 F) in summer and 19 - 25 C (66 - 77 F) in winter.

Covered by nature

97 percent of the four square kilometre continental island is National Park, covered in tropical rainforest and freely accessible to Resort Guests and the public via an established network of walking tracks.  The gentle, hilly terrain inland makes for great walking throughout the whole island, including to the two main beaches, the highest vantage point on the island and the historic lighthouse at the Eastern end. 

Close to Cairns

Fitzroy Island has long been close to the heart of the Cairns and surrounding local community.  This is hardly surprising given the close proximity of this pristine paradise and the safe, sheltered waters.  The island has always been freely accessible to the public, with a number of Fast Cat services travelling back and forth daily and local boaties and yachties making good use of the secure public moorings in private vessels. The island is less than an hour from the Cairns domestic and international airports.

A relaxed, friendly, barefoot destination

Fitzroy Island is a large tropical island, with a rainforest covering and its own fringe coral reef system. It offers, in separate locations, accommodation ranging from affordable four star Resort, to Divers, to Day Trippers, and Camping. The Dive & Activities Centre, the Pacific Islands Store (shop) and Foxy’s Bar & Café are open to all-comers, and the island offers a unique combination of readily accessible rainforest and coral reef. Oh and the beaches are to die for.
