Description

Discover the Frankland Islands, a quieter part of the Great Barrier Reef, on a trip from Cairns. Cruise down the Mulgrave River and relax on the pristine shores. Upgrade for lunch and a guided tour. Take a tropical island adventure and take a leisurely 30-minute cruise down the colorful Mulgrave River. Soak up the beauty of the surrounding rainforest-clad hills from the cabin or shaded deck and admire the panoramic views. Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for crocodiles along the mangrove’s edge. After a short open-water crossing, arrive at Frankland Islands National Park, your tropical destination for the day. A secluded and ancient marine environment, the Frankland Islands are home to thousands of plants and animals species, all waiting to be discovered. Spend 4.5 hours relaxing and exploring this secluded part of the Great Barrier Reef, which sees no more than 100 visitors each day. Opt for the ferry-only option and choose how you spend your day, or go for the fully inclusive tour and take advantage of a day packed with exciting activities, including a guided snorkel tour, adventure safari, guided island walk, lunch, and the use of stand-up paddleboards and other equipment. Snorkel straight from the pristine white sandy beach, where an expert marine naturalist guides you over colorful corals and tropical fish while explaining this unique and wonderful ecosystem. Back on the island, take part in our guided island walk, led by a resident Master Reef Guide or Marine Biologist, showcasing the amazing diversity of this protected national park. Savor a delicious tropical buffet lunch before departing the island in the afternoon. Enjoy the complimentary coffee, tea, and cake served on board while you sail back to Cairns.
