Fitzroy Island Resort

Fitzroy Island, via Cairns QLD


Place Winner - Best Family Resort in Australia 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019
as voted by readers of Holidays with Kids Magazine

Fitzroy Island boasts a single, exclusive, world-class resort built in 2010, nestled perfectly in tropical island paradise and surrounded by luscious rainforest, vibrant reefs, and utter serenity.

Despite feeling like you are on an oasis light years away from the real world, Fitzroy Island is just a 29 kilometre, 45 minute Fast Cat ride from Cairns with three services departing both the island and Cairns daily.

Families will LOVE

  • The 2 bedroom self-contained suites which are comprised of adjoining Suites and Resort Studios meaning you will have plenty of space and sprawling ocean or resort views.
  • Fitzroy Island’s beautiful calm beaches! The reef protects the island from waves and rips making it much safer and more enjoyable to spend the day out on the beach. The beaches are also a little different, they are covered in shell and coral pieces rather than sand, which the kids will love to gather and hunt for.
  • The kids meals and atmosphere at Foxy’s Bar and Café, especially on weekends when there is live entertainment.
  • A lack of having to prepare itineraries and drives to attractions. All you have to do is open your doors and enjoy paradise.

Couples will LOVE

  • The intimacy and privacy of the resort, as it only has 99 rooms, the island is much quieter than mainland destinations making it easier to find a quiet stretch of secluded beach.
  • The great range of activities to partake in! From kayaking to bush walks to the lighthouse, to glass bottom boat cruises around the reef, there is so much to enjoy.
  • Swimming with a drink from the pool bar!
  • A great range of accommodation choices between self-contained suites and studios finished stylishly with marble and wood, elegantly decorated, with fresh and crisp linen, and of course, a tropical beach atmosphere.

Once you pull yourself away from your beautiful accommodation, you will find yourself exploring acres of manicured gardens framing a spectacular pool and spa – complete with pool bar to keep the holiday vibes flowing! Meanwhile, once the kids have had their fill of the pool they can enjoy the cinema and games room for even more holiday fun.

Island cuisine is in no short order on Fitzroy Island, you can enjoy the most important meal of the day in abundance with the amazing cooked buffet breakfast and your caffeine fix at Zephyr Restaurant. By night the alfresco lights up with a fantastic ambience, modern Australian a la carte menu, and impressive selection of wines, cocktails, and other beverages.

For a large slice of island charm, drop by Foxy’s Bar and Café for casual café style dining including great kids meals and coffee! On the weekends they open later and boast live entertainment into the night, with an even more impressive sparkling ocean backdrop. 

There is a general store that stocks all your essentials, meaning you don’t have to eat out every meal, and you can even pack a picnic!

Fitzroy Island Resort offers guests the unique opportunity to discover the exotic marine life and tropical secrets of the Great Barrier Reef and National Park. There are few experiences that allow you to be this intimate with the world’s natural wonders while still enjoying 4.5 star luxury.
