It was amazing! There are a lot of nature there!

I felt seasick but forgot everything when I landed in Fitzroy island. I did snorkel and saw big fish in ocean :) It was really stunning sightseeing when went hiking! I wanted to complete hiking course from the beginning but couldn’t because it was not enough time. Definitely I will go there again!!

Great experience, beautiful island, wonderful staff.

Had a lovely day on Fitzroy island, the ferry to and from was great, and the staff were informative and quite funny. Loved getting to sit on the sundeck during the ferry ride and the bar and ice cream on the way back was an added bonus. Will definitely be booking again.

Raining but wonderful! The walk to nudey is stunning!

Even though it was raining it was still amazing. There’s a restaurant/cafe/bar with food and drinks and plenty to see and do! The walk to nudey beach was gorgeous. Jaz and Richard on Fitzroy Island Tours were lovely and will definitely book again! Don’t forget reef shoes there’s coral everywhere.
