Plan Your Next Girl’s Trip to Fitzroy Island

Maybe the fact that a place like this exists only a stone’s throw from Cairns in North Queensland, Australia.

Fitzroy Island is the name of this magical paradise. When we say paradise, we definitely do not use the term loosely. Fitzroy Island is an idyllic and tranquil tropical island that makes you feel like you’ve flown halfway across the world to some exotic location, but really, it’s only 45 minutes by ferry from the Cairns Marina.

Besides the stunning natural beauty of the island, Fitzroy Island offers its visitors plenty of sights to see and a never ending list of things to do. And on top of all of this, it’s also a safe and friendly holiday destination, welcoming families, friends, couples, and solo travellers too – which makes it a truly ideal holiday destination for a girl’s weekend away.

So, if you’re looking for your ultimate holiday destination for your next girls trip, keep reading to find out why you should choose Fitzroy Island.

5 reasons Fitzroy Island is the best holiday destination for your girls trip

The location is stunning and easy to get to

Many of us dream of basking in the warm sun’s glow on a tropical island in the middle of the ocean. Often though, one of the things that stops us from doing just that is the travelling logistics and expenses.

Well, even though Fitzroy Island has all of the perks of a tropical island, it’s also actually so easy to get to – taking only 45 minutes on the Fitzroy Flyer ferry from the Cairns Marina. The ferry runs several times a day with tickets starting from under $50.

To get on the ferry, you will need to make your way to Cairns, however, as Cairns is a somewhat large city, sometimes referred to as the capital city of Far North Queensland, there is an airport, making it easy to get to from various parts of Australia and the world.

Its close proximity to the mainland makes it a super popular day trip destination too. So even if you can’t dedicate more than a day to your Fitzroy Island trip, you can still enjoy a lot of what the island has to offer in a short amount of time.

You can also use your own boat to get to Fitzroy Island. You will need to pay a mooring fee but you can learn more about this here.

It is an idyllic tropical island

The natural beauty of Fitzroy Island is truly mind blowing and will have you feeling instantaneously relaxed the moment you arrive.

Soak in the beauty of the island on the beach that was named australia’s most beautiful beach in 2018 – Nudie Beach. Have a picnic, read a book and watch the world pass you by.

As the sunsets you can be sipping cocktails overlooking the water at Foxy’s. Live music and delicious food will keep you entertained and satisfied well into the night.

You can spend hours if not days just marvelling at the beauty at every turn on Fitzroy Island. All of your tropical island fantasies can really be fulfilled on Fitzroy Island.

Only metres from the shore of Fitzroy, you can start to explore the magical marine world of the Coral Sea. You can discover the colourful corals and curious creatures of the Reef, and with plenty of tours, activities and trips available on and from the island, you can discover the Reef however you like.
