I recently spend some time in Far North Queensland, and I fell in love with this area! From stunning untouched roughed nature to the Great Barrier Reef, a Rainforest and a pumping city! Cairns in Queensland truly has it all! I have therefore created this Cairns itinerary for when you are heading to Far North Queensland for a couple of days and want to head out and explore. This Cairns Itinerary will allow you to explore Cairns itself for one day and takes you out to Fitzroy Island as well as Daintree National Park. Though you can’t see everything in Cairns and its surroundings in just 3 days, I think this itinerary will allow you to cover as much ground as possible.
Only a 45-minute ferry ride from the Tropical Far North Queensland town of Cairns you can find beautiful Fitzroy Island. Home the number one beach in Australia, lots of snorkeling options and plenty of wildlife, this island is not to be missed when traveling to Cairns. The island is filled with stunning nature, it has a lack of cars, surrounded by stunning turquoise ocean, and many wild turtles! It is no surprise that many people pop over this island to get away for the hustle and bustle of city life. Attracting almost 320,000 this island is however not yet overrun by tourists, making it a nice little must-see heaven. Because of it close locating it makes Fitzroy Island a perfect for a day trip. But what should you do when spending one day in Fitzroy? Check it out below….
