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!

Good value for families

Not your 5 star resort but is still good value for all families and even oldies as well. Main restaurant is pricey but there are alternatives.

Good for kids

Great place for snorkellers/aqualung divers and good for kids as well. Check transfer ferry times as they do not depart all times, all days.
