Fitzroy Island Lighthouse
Starting from the jetty in front of the Fitzroy Island Resort, this return walk takes you to the Fitzroy Island Lighthouse via the same-titled concrete road, passing by Welcome Beach along the way. The lighthouse was once used by the chinese people during the goldrush, then served as an observation post during WWII as well. In August, you may have a chance to see migrating whales from here. The beaches and the resort can make this island a perfect weekend getaway which is only a 45 minute ferry(Fast Cat) ride away from the Cairns Marlin Marina. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
