Experience all that Fitzroy Island has to offer on this spectacular self-guided day trip at this incredible location!

Departing Cairns we’ll take a 45-minute ferry to the Island, and the rest of the day is up to you! We have two time options, departing Cairns at 8:00am or 11:00am and returning at 5:00pm.

Once on the island you’ll be free to relax, play and explore this remarkable slice of paradise as you please.

There's plenty to do on the Island! You can hire kayaks, snorkel gear and paddle boards. There is also a café and general store so you’ll be set for lunch and snacks to keep you fuelled throughout the day. There is free fish feeding twice a day at the jetty, and a tour of the Turtle Rehabilitation Centre can also be booked at additional cost on the day.

The Fitzroy Island is surrounded by the famous Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and is perfect for snorkelling or diving. The reef system is world heritage listed and is an absolute must-see for anyone visiting the region!

The beaches are safe and sheltered, ideal for swimming with the kids or simply relaxing on the beachside and soaking in the picturesque scenery.

There is plenty to explore on land too with multiple walks through the lush island tropical rainforest.

A brilliant way to explore one of Australia’s iconic scenic destinations, and a fantastic day out that the whole family will love!
