Fitzroy Island National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Only 45 minutes by boat from Cairns lies 339ha of tropical island national park. Originally named by Captain Cook in 1770 the park is part of the coastal granite chain of mountains along the far north coast. The park is popular with day-trippers from Cairns trying their hand at snorkelling on the reefs, scuba diving, sea kayaking, fishing, and bushwalking.

The location of the island has led to several shipwrecks and eventually the construction of a lighthouse. Unfortunately marine stingers can be found during the summer months and estuarine crocodiles are found in waters around and on the island.

Waters surrounding the island are part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park please observe all restrictions on collecting sea life and coral in these areas.

Open fires on island national parks or beaches are not permitted.

There are no camping facilities on the islands a resort however is available and must be booked in advanced.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information. You can also contact the local Queensland Parks & Wildlife Service.
