  • There is a cheap parking lot at 2/18 Hartley's St, this is a 10 minute walk to the Reef Fleet Terminal.
  • We recommend doing your Outer Reef Tour on your day of arrival so that it gives you time to reschedule if it were cancelled due to unforseen circumstances.

We really enjoyed our few days

We really enjoyed our few days on Fitzroy Island. We had read earlier a minority of critical reviews of the resort and we cannot understand why. I think some people must get out of the wrong side of bed in the morning!
