Tour Description


Discover one of Tropical North Queensland’s best-kept secrets! With vibrant fringing reefs, rock pools, white sandy beaches and dense rainforest, the Great Barrier Reef’s Frankland Islands is an undeveloped, pristine archipelago that is not to be missed. Escape the crowds on this exclusive day tour that takes in the incredible sights of the Reef, Rainforest and River.



This tour departs from the Mulgrave River which is a lovely 40 minute drive south of Cairns. You can self-drive or request a coach pick up for a small fee. The river cruise is in completely calm water and the journey in open water to the island is just 6 miles - approximately 30 minutes.



Enjoy a guided snorkelling tour straight from the pristine white sandy beach, where an expert marine naturalist will guide you over colourful corals and tropical fish, explaining this unique and wonderful ecosystem. Alternatively, stay dry and choose a coral viewing from the semi-submersible or glass bottom boat (optional extra cost). Other optional activities include an adventure snorkel safari, scuba diving and a guided Island Discovery walk that takes in the coral cay forest, sandy beaches and the reef's nursery. Clear-bottomed kayaks, stand up paddle boards and Sea-Doo underwater scooters are available for hire. Included in your tour is a tropical buffet lunch served on the island with a choice of fresh local prawns, salads, chicken, ham, cheese, bread and an abundance of fresh tropical fruit.



After departing the island in the afternoon, enjoy afternoon tea around 2:30pm on the lovely return cruise along the river and be back at your accommodation with plenty of time to enjoy your evening!
