Fitzroy Island, Qld
Excellent bushwalking particularly to the lighthouse, swimming and snorkelling. There are four main walking trails on the island.
(a) the secret garden - a pleasant 45 minute walk (return) through rainforest
(b) Nudey Beach - a pleasant and easy walk to a quiet and peaceful beach through rainforest and coastal bush - 1.2 km - 45 minutes return
(c) Lighthouse road - a steep road (it is concreted all the way) up to the island's modern lighthouse (built 1970). It is 3.6 km return (2 hours) The views are spectacular and worth the hard effort
(d) Summit trail - just below the lighthouse is the 1.5 km return walk to the summit. It offers even more spectacular views but is also very steep. Really for fit bushwalkers rather than day trippers.
