Cairns Great Barrier Reef Islands Holiday Package

Fitzroy Island $335 family holiday package has snorkeling, glass bottom boat and cruise to Cairns Great Barrier Reef Islands for 2 adults, 2 kids saving $55 and is amazing value.

For families a day tour to a Great Barrier Reef island is the perfect choice, because unlike being stuck on a boat for the whole day, the kids can safely swim and snorkel right off the beach and see coral and fish.

While our glass bottom boat tour takes you to some of the best coral locations in harder to reach areas, letting you see an up close view of the reef from above, with a commentary about the types of hard and soft corals you are seeing.

Plus Fitzroy Island is huge, with easy rainforest walks to explore and longer treks to the lighthouse and the summit.
