If the idea of hanging out on one of five uninhabited, coral-fringed islands with excellent snorkelling and stunning white-sand beaches appeals – and really, how can it not? – cruise out to the Frankland Group National Park. These continental islands are made up of High Island to the north, and Normanby, Mabel, Round and Russell islands to the south.
The islands are draped in rainforest, dotted with mangroves and studded with rocky outcrops. They're an adventurer's dream come true, though those looking to do absolutely nothing on a deserted beach will also find their bliss.
