Frankland Islands Group National Park
Surrounded by extensive fringing reefs, the five islands of Frankland Group National Park feature rocky outcrops, dense rainforest, mangroves and coastal vegetation, making them a haven for wildlife. A colony of spectacled flying-foxes roosts on Russell Island, while manta rays and sea turtles have been spotted in nearby waters, part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
Visit the islands in your private vessel from Mulgrave or Russell River boat ramps or go with a commercial tour operator and enjoy a guided nature trail on Normanby Island. Comb the shores at low tide to see intriguing ocean treasures washed up by the sea. Snorkel or dive and enjoy the underwater wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Camp on Russell Island to truly experience this peaceful island and reef.
