Have stayed on other Barrier Reef islands and my partner and I decided to try 3 nights on Fitzroy, which has relatively easy access from Cairns. It's a 45 minute boat ride from Cairns 'Reef Terminal' which is a short bus or cab ride from the airport. The island has only relatively recently reopened (2 years or so) and the... More

Great place for a quiet few days, on the reef so snorkeling & glass bottom boat available, and also good safe swimming. A few nice short walks among the forests. Hotel rooms are spacious, clean most with Ocean Views. The only downside is the restaurants, only 2 available, 1 is good restaurant quality the other (Foxys) is lacking in quality,... More

We have awesome time and definitely wil come back. We have great room except one room number 103 is very smelly and dirty, we asked the room boy to give a good spray with nice smelly stuff but it didn't help. We have to put up with it for 2 nights 3 days. We spend our time at the foxy... More

Ive stayed a few times at Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays so i decided to give another island resort in Queensland a try. The experience here is quite different in many ways. Firstly there is no town on Fitzroy island, there is the national park and the resort. This means that there is not that much to do on the... More

Fitzroy Island boasts arguably the best off shore snorkeling in the Cairns Rea with warm azure water and abundant coral just a few paces off both main beach and nudie beach. Add some small jungle paths, pristine white sand /coral beaches and an easily accessible reasonably priced beachside restaurant all make Fitzroy an affordable great day trip for the family.... More

Came to Fitzroy on the groupon deal for 4 nights which included ferry transfers and buffet breakfast. Before travelling I had read all the negative reviews on here which made me slightly worried so I upgraded to an ocean suite. I also went shopping in Cairns for all basic foods... Both of these things made the trip surprisingly amazing. I... More

Staying on this island just gets better each time. The staff are so efficient, friendly and professional. Previously we have stayed in an oceanview apartment but this trip we stayed in a studio suite. It was clean, comfortable and spacious but we suggest you pay a few dollars extra for the ocean view with large balcony. Zephyr,a five star restaurant... More

We just got home from our honey moon which was 6 nights in a ocean suite, overall everything was perfect, meals were quick and delicious, beach and snorkelling was excellent and the room was lovely. Will definitely be back !!
