Overview of Fitzroy Island Mountain Summit

Follow Lighthouse road (as above) for 1.6km where the Summit track branches off to the right. Follow this 600m boulder-strewn track upwards through woodland to the summit. At the summit (269m) slabs of granite and windswept casuarina trees frame magnificent views over the island, surrounding reefs and mainland. (4.4km return, 3 hours total, Grade: Medium)

"It was quite a walk to the top. Great exercise. We had to go the long route towards the lighthouse. The shorter route starts behind the hotel, but it wasn't safe to travel that day."

Vera H. wrote about Boiling Lake:

"This is rated as a difficult/strenuous hike. It's about 7 hours round trip. There are a lot of steep steps going up & down. I consider myself to be mildly in shape. My quads were definitely burning going up the steps & my knees grumbled going down the steps. I was able to make the entire hike but I did have to stop a couple times to rest & catch my breath. It also rained during our hike which made the steps muddy & slippery. I slipped on the hike back & tweaked my wrists, so be careful! There was one person in our group that had to stop before they got to the Boiling Lake, their legs started cramping up. But we saw a bunch of younger kids just running up the steep steps and they didn't even look tired. Definitely take a guide with you on this one. Our guide showed us where to get the sulphur mud to put on our faces & arms like a mud-mask. He even boiled us some eggs in the hot pools! Also, take a couple changes of clothes (rain jacket, long sleeve shirt, bathing suit & a towel). It was VERY windy in some spots & after it rained on us, it didn't feel good to be cold & wet. But we did get to soak in the warm pools on the way down, it warmed us up & got us relaxed. Made it hard to continue on the hike, haha. I only recommend going if you are in decent shape & not afraid of heights.
