Russell Island Camping transfers by Frankland Islands Reef Cruises

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Start with a drive past rainforest-clad mountains and a calm scenic river cruise onboard the luxurious air-conditioned vessel. Frankland Islands National Park is pristine and undeveloped and you can snorkel straight from the beach across a wide variety of colourful coral and a vast array of tropical fish. Follow giant turtles as they glide through the water, set up your tent and your time is yours. Camping sites are limited, this is one of the few locations on the Great Barrier Reef that island camping is allowed!

Quotes can be provided for groups, schools and locals so please contact our office.

A camping permit must be obtained through QPWS.

Coach pick-ups from hotels available from Cairns CBD or self-drive to 169 Ross Road Deeral. Free parking available at this location.

Enjoy the drive past rainforest clad mountain ranges and open fields of sugar cane, then take in the scenery on the 30 minute Mulgrave River cruise while you travel on board the luxurious air-conditioned vessel. Travel a short open water crossing to Frankland Group National Park where you can literally snorkel straight from the beach across a wide variety of colourful coral and a vast array of tropical fish. Follow giant turtles as they glide through the water.

If you prefer you can view spectacular coral from the comfort of the semi-submersible while crew talk you through the amazing array of fish and coral. You can also explore the island at your leisure or join a guided tour and explore rock pools full of life with their marine biologist.

Accredited dive instructors can help you enjoy a scuba dive amongst the rich underwater world.

You will enjoy a tropical buffet lunch including prawns and morning and afternoon tea, with a licenced bar and snacks available on board.
