We really enjoyed our day on Fitzroy. We visited the turtle rehab and learnt about the good work they do there, then trekked up to the lighthouse which offered wonderful views. After a very good lunch (if pricey) at Foxy's we did some snorkelling. This is a great little tropical getaway, and its easy to escape the tourists here.

So I was not too confident when we left the jetty to head to Fitzroy Island...gladly I will admit, I was... More

This island is not one to be missed, its picture perfect! The island is a nice size and not too busy so you cant really enjoy the day here exploring and relaxing. The facilities were great and the crew were very helpful and friendly

All seemed to go to plan until we were approached by the island resort management and told er could not camp for the night as it was booked out. As a tour operator raging thunder NEVER advised that we needed to book camping even... More

We opted for the sea kayaking your with raging thunder! Had a great day. The kayaking was good fun and as part of this we snorkelled at Shark Bay (or something along those lines!). Unfortunately due to weather conditions we couldn't kayak to Little Fitzroy Island where we were meant to snorkel. Where we did snorkel was a nice spot... More
