Introducing Frankland Islands National Park

A group of five islands surrounded by coral, the Frankland Islands have gorgeous, sandy beaches and offer a splendid day’s snorkelling. Camping is allowed in the national park, and permits are available from Cairns QPWS (07-4046 6600; www.epa.qld.gov.au; 5b Sheridan St, Cairns; 8.30am-5pm Mon-Fri), but you’ll need to be fully self-sufficient.
