A favourite destination for Cairns locals and visitors alike, Fitzroy Island is 99 per cent lush rainforest, with gorgeous beaches, spectacular walking trails, abundant coral and marine life and plenty of adventure activities.

Sunlover runs a daily Fitzroy Island full-day experience that includes return ferry transfers, snorkel equipment hire and a glass bottom boat tour. You can snorkel straight off the beach and discover amazing marine life and sea turtles, or simply sit back and soak up the serenity on the sandy shores of the famous Nudey Beach - voted the best beach in Australia.

Foxy's Bar is open daily for lunch or a drink, take a bush walk to the island's summit or lighthouse or check out the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre.

This tropical paradise is just a short 45-minute ride in Sunlover's air-conditioned catamaran.
