Beautiful island to spend a day off and escape from city. Wonderful sea and relaxing area. We also snorkeling and see fish and coral, even if last year we found more fish. Always a pleasure go there when is not raining. Highly recommend.

After a slightly rough sail we arrived at beautiful Fitzroy. I definitely recommend spending 8+ hours at the island. We "hiked" to the light tower and up to top of the island, where we were truly met by a marvellous view! Don't cheat yourself of...More

There are day trips here but you only get about 6.5 hours on the island accounting for the return journey by boats. I would recommend spending 2 days if you have the time and money. To climb on the paths to the peak takes 2.5...More

Maybe you could contact one of the caravan parks. I would imagine they should be able to find you a store area.

The sea does not get too rough, and if you stay seated as they request you can't fall over. Regulations would dictate that they would not go if the weather was unsuitable. Australia is very safety conscious.
