Fitzroy Island is a small rugged continental island covered in tropical forest just 35km southeast of Cairns but just 4km off the Yarrabah Peninsula, and sports the upmarket Fitzroy Island Resort. You can visit as a day-tripper, and away from the manicured beach fronting the resort there are some worthwhile walks through highland greenery, notably the two-hour trek to the Lighthouse for excellent views.
