Fitzroy Island Ferry & Activities – Full Day Options

$89.00

FIA

Fitzroy Island lets you experience the rainforest, the reef and a tropical island all in the one day from Cairns.  Fitzroy Island is only a 45 minute boat ride from Cairns and getting there is quite spectacular in itself as you skirt alongside the truly beautiful coastline. Fitzroy Island is quite mountainous and provides multiple walking tracks for the keen hiker, and is also home to the famous Nudey Beach (not a nudist beach).  You can also enjoy snorkelling in a variety of locations off the Island or even join a glass bottom coral viewing boat tour.
