Summit Track is a 3.6km, grade 4 Return hike located in Fitzroy Island National Park Queensland. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.


Get a 360 degree view of the Great Barrier Reef and the Tropical North Queensland coastline from the 269 metre summit of Fitzroy Island. Just a 45-minute boat ride from Cairns, Fitzroy Island National Park has white coral-strewn beaches and clear blue water that makes the summit view even more spectacular. During whale season you may be rewarded with a display by a humpback whale.

About the region

Fitzroy Island National Park is a gazetted protected area covering Fitzroy Island, in Far North Queensland, Queensland, Australia. Fitzroy Island (also called Koba or Gabar), is a continental island located 22 kilometres (14 mi) east of Cairns on the mainland.

The Aboriginal people particularly connected to this Island are the Kobaburra (or alternatively Gaba:ra) from within the Gungganyji language group.

As a Queensland National Park the natural and cultural resources of the Island itself (down to high tide) are protected by the Nature Conservation Act 1992 and much of the island is therefore off-limits to visitors. Most visitors remain on the sheltered western side of the island, where the jetty, resort and best snorkeling can be found.
