We thorfroughly enjoyed our time on Fitzroy island. Special thanks to the team at the dive shop and Terry the head Chef at Zephyrs. We travelled with our 10 year old son. He loved spending time by the pool, and watching the fish and the fish feeding. Foxys was very relaxed and comfortable. So glad we took our groceries for... More

Dear Barbara P Thank you for posting your review. It appears you really made the most of your two night stay with us on Fitzroy Island. The walks to Nudey Beach, the lighthouse and the summit are certainly a great way to take in the beauty of the National Park. I am glad you enjoyed the glass bottom boat trip... More

We stayed in Castaway cottage with our 3 children (10,13 and 17). I hadn't been to an island resort before so wasn't sure it would live up to expectations- but went far beyond. The cottage is probably the best place to stay on the island, with amazing views, secluded and lots of space for a family. We walked barely 50... More

Dear jk159 Thank you for taking the time to post your review. It is especially nice to read that our staff were great and you enjoyed the snorkelling off the beach.

We recently spent 3 nights here after hearing how great it was from someone we knew. I'd thoroughly recommend this spot as an affordable alternative to visiting the more expensive Great Barrier Reef excursions as the snorkelling off the beach was excellent, the marine life and coral on display was first class. In terms of the resort it's just disappointing... More

We just returned from a 2 night stay at Fitzroy. We had a good local special and went with two other families, each with 2 kids ranging from 4 - 11yrs. Positives: There was heaps to do! The beaches and water were stunningly beautiful. The kids loved the water trampoline, spending ages on there. It had a slight rip in... More

Dear topend girl It was great to read you had such a fantastic time during your stay with us. Your review provides an excellent summary of almost everything available for families on the island. I would also agree that it is best to walk to the lighthouse in footwear other than thongs, but am impressed to see it can be... More

We signed up for annual membership and booked a night for my husband's birthday which unfortunately coincides with the school holidays. The staff are friendly and helpful but there's simply not enough staff to handle a full resort. We arrived at 12 and were told our room would not be ready until the advertised check in time of 2pm. Fair... More

Dear reefnoutback It is always nice to receive feedback from our Fitzroy Island Reward members, especially locals that return to the island on a regular basis.

Stunning beach and water - plenty of activities! Nice pool and relaxing atmosphere. Attentive staff. In my opinion for the price of the rooms per night the cost of the ferry to and from the island should definitely be included - decent discount for locals though! Really lovely food - definitely try the Duck dish at Zephyr Restaurant... quite expensive.... More
