Fitzroy Island Resort Rating: 4.5

Air Conditioning Swimming Pool Dining Bar Diving

Fitzroy Island is located just 29 kilometres from the mainland of Cairns in North Queensland. Fringed by the Great Barrier Reef, this island is a rare and unspoilt gem that is 339 hectares in size, and covered in lush rainforest that descends dramatically into crystal clear water.

Surrounded on one side by majestic rainforest and on the other by vast expanses of crystal clear ocean, Fitzroy Island Resort has been carved with warm timbers, natural stone, elegant water features and mood lighting combined with simple architectural lines to create a resort that integrates seamlessly within the natural environment. Offering guests a choice of accommodation styles, this is the perfect place to relax, unwind and be indulged.

The resort facilities include a contemporary restaurant, large pool with a pool bar and swim up bar, games room, indoor movie theatre and resort mini supermarket.

Try the Secret Garden Walk for a short walk amongst the rainforest and/or the Lighthouse & Summit Trail for a steep walk to the lighthouse for expansive views out to Little Fitzroy Island. Fitzroy is almost completely surrounded by coral reef, making it an excellent place for snorkelling. The most popular spot is Nudey Beach, which is only about one kilometre from the resort.

Fitzroy Island Resort is the ideal place to base yourself for a truly memorable Great Barrier Reef holiday.
