Contiki meets Fitzroy

Fitzroy Island, was the first day that we spend as a group together. Which group you are wondering? Well it was the Contiki group that does the Reefs and rainforest trip out of their catalogue.

Last night we spend in Cairns and this morning we met each other for the first time and it was already running because we didn’t see the notice that we only could bring a small day pack for a few days.

The ferry brought us very soon to Fitzroy Island and we had a great relaxing time on the island and the group got close together these first days.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A relaxing place and one sand beach
  • Cons:dead coral beaches
  • In a nutshell:A nice island to relax

    Hi Alain! Qld. indeed has several beaches to go nude but of course not officially designated like in NSW, Vic. or SA. Alexandria Bay in Noosa for one is extremely poular! Gt. Keppel is laid back enough for them. Still, good Fitzroy Page. thanks

    Very interesting 2nd general tip Alain. I was wondering if you'd mention it again after your accomodation tip. Must take the family up to see one of the islands & more importantly, the Reef b4 the crown of thorns starfish & global warming destroys it.
