Fitzroy Island is one of the most unspoilt islands adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef, and has changed little since being named by Lt. James Cook during his voyage of discovery in 1770. These days Fitzroy Island is an affordable island paradise 45 minutes from Cairns by sea transfer.
Guests on the resort have a variety of eating options. They can cater for themselves, enjoy the Flare Grill and Salad Bar, or dine in the Rainforest Restaurant. Your accommodation is informal and comfortable. There are two types of accommodation. Beach Cabins have spectacular views across Welcome Bay, and have two bedrooms. And Beach Bunkhouses which consist of hostel type rooms that sleep four people.
The island is surrounded by a beautiful fringing reef full of colourful marine life. The reef is easily accessible by snorkeller from the beaches of Welcome Bay. Since there are no box jellyfish in the waters off Fitzroy Island, swimming is possible all year round
