Fitzroy Island Adventures (Experience Co)

Fitzroy Island Activity Pass 1 - Snorkel - 0900 Departure

Fitzroy Island is located only 45 minutes from Cairns, by fast catamaran and yet it is one of the most unspoiled islands adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef. Fitzroy Island is one of 600 "Continental" or "High" islands on the Great Barrier Reef which means it used to be part of the mainland before rising waters separated this tranquil paradise. Over time a fringing coral reef surrounded the island, providing a sheltered home for a variety of fish and coral species. This area now forms part the Inner Barrier, of the Central Region of the Great Barrier Reef. And so this area can be protected for future generations, it is part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area, one of the several natural wonders of the World.

Ferry Departs Cairns at 9:00am
Ferry Departs Fitzroy Island at 2:00pm or 4:00pm (default ferry selection is 4pm. Please advise if you would like to change your ferry departure to 2pm).

Cairns ZOOM and Wildlife Dome

ZOOM (with Wildlife Entry)

The Cairns Wildlife Dome is a spectacular all-weather wildlife exhibit, encased by a 20-metre high glass dome on the rooftop of the prominent Reef Hotel Casino, right in the heart of Cairns. Visitors are immersed in a rainforest environment whilst parrots, cockatoos, lorikeets, and other birds native to the Wet Tropics region fly freely around, with the opportunity to observe free-roaming rainforest wallabies and bettongs, and curlews, frogmouths, kookaburras, frogs, turtles, pythons, crocodiles and lizards. The Wildlife Dome is an immersion exhibit, which means the birds and most of the animals can roam free within the confines of the large aviary enclosure. This allows more interaction between humans and the environment.

Complimentary guided tours and animal presentations take place throughout the day, providing an interactive learning experience about rainforest wildlife and superb photo opportunities.

The Cairns ZOOM takes this to a higher level (pun intended) by having visitors experience a challenge Ropes Course at different heights within the Dome so that birds and tourists can interact, appreciate and be educated about our native fauna while having an exhilarating experience. Cairns ZOOM includes a number of different elements which challenge participants personally, physically and mentally. Challenge ropes courses encourage creative problem solving - thinking "outside the square"; teamwork and co-operation and also challenge the individual to push their own boundaries and comfort level. Ropes courses can create a great sense of achievement in the participant when they complete the course and is therefore a positive and fun experience.

At Cairns ZOOM, enjoy YOUR favourite activities. Each Activity ticket is valid for any of the Activities at the Cairns ZOOM, so you can choose to do any combination of activities, or repeat the same activity multiple times. It's completely up to you, and you don't have to decide which activities beforehand, simply buy as many Activity tickets as YOU want to, and use them however YOU want.

Fitzroy Island Adventures (Experience Co)

Fitzroy Island Activity Pass 1 - Snorkel - 0900 Departure

Fitzroy Island is located only 45 minutes from Cairns, by fast catamaran and yet it is one of the most unspoiled islands adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef. Fitzroy Island is one of 600 "Continental" or "High" islands on the Great Barrier Reef which means it used to be part of the mainland before rising waters separated this tranquil paradise. Over time a fringing coral reef surrounded the island, providing a sheltered home for a variety of fish and coral species. This area now forms part the Inner Barrier, of the Central Region of the Great Barrier Reef. And so this area can be protected for future generations, it is part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area, one of the several natural wonders of the World.
