Fitzroy Island is located only 45 mintute from Cairns by fast catamaran and yet it is one of the most unspoilt islands adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef. Fitzroy Island is one of 600 "Continental" or "High" islands on the Great Barrier Reef which means it used to be part of the mainland before rising waters separated this tranquil paradise. Over time a fringing coral reef surrounded the island, providing a sheltered home for a variety of fish and coral species. This area now forms part the Inner Barrier, of the Central Region of the Great Barrier Reef.

Raging Thunder offers daily transfers to Fitzroy Island and Activity Passes are also available.

Cruising time to Fitzroy Island is only 45 minutes along the coastline South of Cairns.
The perfect reef trip for families, the kids can learn to snorkel right off the beach, with coral and fish only metres from the shore.
