Introducing Fitzroy Island

Dip your toes into the powder-white sand of Nudey Beach, a picture-perfect beach framed by nature-sculpted rocks that shelve into clear water perfect for snorkelling and swimming.

Look out for clownfish, parrotfish, anemone fish, wrass and the occasional green sea turtle.

Kayak the sheltered waters of Welcome Bay, take a diving day trip the Great Barrier Reef and spot monitor lizards, skinks and pythons from trails that weave through the national park.

Enjoy 360-degree panoramic views from the island’s summit and lighthouse, which sits on the northwest point of the island overlooking Little Fitzroy Island and Cape Grafton.

From this vantage point you can easily spot humpback whales during their migration from June to August.


Be pampered at Fitzroy Island’s only resort, the 3-star Fitzroy Island Resort.
