Fitzroy island

Ultimate guide (November 2021)
Fitzroy is an island near Cairns of Australia. There are few beaches, but nothing really good. The main problem is that the beach is not sandy, but consists of coral chips. Surrounding hills have several hiking trails with good views. Shore and seabed: pebble, stones. [edit]
