Spent 2 nights on Fitzroy Island recently. The island itself is pretty with beautiful turquoise water and tropical vegetation. Most beaches coral, so not super comfortable for walking or laying on. Snorkelling was ok, but does not compare with snorkelling on the outer barrier reef. Saw lots of colourful fish but not much coloured coral. I was a bit disappointed with the resort and facilities. Stayed in an ocean suite, thought decor was on the tacky side and the bathroom layout very weird. Shower with no screen right next to toilet which you can't help getting wet. After shower water all over the bathroom floor and on toilet. I wouldn't call this luxury accommodation.
