Spend a day soaking up the sun and sand on Fitzroy Island, an unspoiled outpost on the Great Barrier Reef covered in lush rainforest and surrounded by clear waters and coral reefs. Ferry across from Cairns to experience the best of the island with activities like snorkelling, an ocean trampoline, and a tasty picnic lunch.

Plus our included beach hire activities give you so much more to do, jump on the ocean trampoline, try a stand up paddle board and grab a single or double surf skis for guaranteed family fun!

Make your way to the ferry terminal in Cairns, pick up your tickets, and board the vessel for a scenic, 50-minute cruise across calm waters to Fitzroy Island. When you arrive, head to the beach hire hut next to the jetty to arrange a time for the glass-bottom boat tour or pick up your snorkelling equipment.
After that, the day is yours to while away at your leisure. Stroll along walking trails in the National Park, dig your toes into the sand at Nudey Beach, tackle the waves in a paddle ski, or bounce around on the ocean trampoline. Head back to the beach hut when you're ready to pick up your lunch, and enjoy the rest of the afternoon on the island before your return ferry back to Cairns.
