Fitzroy Island Day Tour Info

Fitzroy Island is only 45 minutes from Cairns and is one of the most unspoilt islands on the Great Barrier Reef.

Being a continental island, it is covered with lush, pristine rainforest. Getting wet and exploring the coral reef surrounding the island, where tropical fish present a rainbow of colour, is as easy as stepping off the beach.

Bird life also abounds here, presenting a natural showcase not to be missed. If you want to explore an idyllic, unspoilt tropical paradise, your choices are plentiful with a day tour to Fitzroy Island.

Spend the day snorkelling the fringing coral reefs, strolling through the National Park rainforest walking tracks, or for the more adventurous hiker, discover breathtaking views of the island and surrounding reefs. There are hiking trails and guided walks as well as numerous water sports options available.

The Beach hire hut has noodles as a safety measure provided free to Raging Thunder guests.  Wetsuits are available for hire with Size 6 being the smallest size.
