Where to Stay in Fitzroy Island
Fitzroy Island’s tropical climate is tempered by cooling ocean breezes from the southwest, making it the ideal place to spend a day in the sun any time of the year. With temperatures that rarely drop below 19? even in winter, visitors can splash, swim, and snorkel to their heart’s content. Fitzroy Island resorts are the perfect jumping-off point for adventure; simply stroll out of any front door to find one of the island’s walking paths, where stunning views and exotic foliage await.
Ferries regularly shuttle visitors from Cairns hotels on the mainland to their awaiting Fitzroy Island hotel, where plenty of outdoor excursions await. Better yet, the ride takes less than an hour. The island is best explored on foot, so come prepared to hike and experience a breathtaking panoramic view of the sea. Plus, thanks to the surrounding reef’s protected status as part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, there’s plenty to see below the waves as well.
