Length of stay

My son and I will be in Cairns in October and will be also going across to Fitzroy Island. We are currently booked in for three nights. Is this enough? My son is 10 y.o.

I'm just going to bump up this thread, so hopefully one of the Queensland experts can come and help answer your question.

The island isn't big. One day on the island is enough. Day trip is usually sufficicient for punters.

We did a day trip to outer reef pontoon. Great snorkeling.

If you have time and money, though, give it a coupke more days or few.

You can do a packaged Hot Air Balloon/SkyRail(Gondola)/Kuranda Village/Kuranda Scenic Train for $2xx/Adult. I think it's worth it.

Spend a day exploring the town is quite relaxing, too.

I'm planning a visit the for 4 nights but my aim is just to relax and unwind. I've asked a few people I know for their opinion too and they've said Fitzroy Island has lots of activities to keep you occupied. I can only lounge at the pool for so long and like to explore too, so I think 3-4 days is about right.
