Great Barrier Reef Islands from Cairns

Fitzroy Island is the closest of the Great Barrier Reef Islands to Cairns with great snorkelling and rainforest walking tracks giving you more to experience and explore than a small coral cay such as Green Island.

These Great Barrier Reef islands are largely untouched with 96% protected and maintained as Fitzroy Island National Park. With easily accessible walking tracks through the rainforest to Nudey Beach, and the summit of Fitzroy Island.

The fringing coral reefs around the island allow you to snorkel from right off the beach, and the glass bottom boat takes you on a tour to some of the best great barrier reef locations near the island.
