Recommend the 3rd floor ocean view suite.

Our family stayed two nights at Fitzroy Island. Recommend the 3rd floor ocean view suite. A little extra cost but worth the view. If you have a kitchen, take as much food as you can. The resort bar / cafe is reasonable but general store is expensive.

Fitzroy Island is an amazing place!!!

Fitzroy Island is an amazing place!!! We spent 3 nights in a beachside cabin which was great value for money. The turtle rehab centre and fabulous snorkelling just off the beach were a highlight along with the hike up the summit. The staff were awesome, very friendly and fun. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone :)

Amazing views

We were looking forward to this part of our vacation ever since booking it. It was a dream come true to kayak in the Great Barrier Reef, and we were not disappointed because our guide was extremely competent and knowledgeable. He took us to Little Fitzroy Island, where he showed us amazing views, told us about the history, and pointed out the unique wild life. We also had time to snorkel in a setting that was our own. Throughout the day the staff was very personable, kind and courteous, and went out of their way to make sure that our experience was optimal.

Would recommend to all friends

This experience was incredible. After a hectic start it was great to get in the water and explore the island. Our guides were full of knowledge and good to see that they are passionate about their jobs!! Would recommend to all friends and cannot wait to get back!
