Soak up the spectacular natural beauty of Tropical North Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef with a stay at the eco-friendly Fitzroy Island Resort, just a 45-minute catamaran ferry ride from Cairns. From the rainforest to the reef, Fitzroy Island’s remarkable landscapes are begging to be explored – hike the butterfly-filled Secret Garden, snorkel with clownfish and sea turtles in the island’s vivid coral kingdoms or seek the golden sands and balmy blue waters of Nudey Beach, crowned one of Australia’s very best. The resort is also home to the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre (surcharges apply), so you can get up close and personal with the island's cutest inhabitants.
Return to the resort and embrace barefoot bliss. Start the morning with barista-poured coffee and a la carte breakfast served al fresco at Zephyr Restaurant and slip into tropical cocktails at the resort’s swim-up Pool Bar. A rotating schedule of activities means that every day on Fitzroy Island is an adventure, with activities like fish feeding from the jetty and glass bottom boat tours being perfect for adults and little ones alike.
Travelling with family? Upgrade to the Island Suite for up to two adults and two children (surcharges apply).
