Location: Fitzroy Island
Fitzroy Island National Park. We’re approximately 15 nautical miles from Cairns. T his sweet island paradise symbolizes our last days cruising the South Pacific. Even with the roaring winds, you can feel it in the air. Water trampolines, nature hikes, no-so-hidden beaches, boulders, and basketball made the afternoon fly by. Our adrenaline high, our desire for exploring satisfied, we settle into the evening of final exam studying, Oceanography/Marine Bio labs, and our marathon squeeze question to date; 40 minutes. The sunsets everywhere we have been have been noteworthy. However, the sunsets over the Australian mainland during dinner are worthy of professional watercolors. Beautiful.
