This 3 Day Island Hopper Package will allow you to visit three of our beautiful tropical islands over three separate days. They do not have to be consecutive days and can also be done in any order. You will get to visit and explore Green Island, Fitzroy Island and the Frankland Islands. These three individual Islands have been carefully selected for this package, as they are all very different to each other and therefore offer their own unique Island Experience. There are two package prices – you can opt for ferry only service and you are welcome to bring your own snorkel gear and lunch with you. Or opt to have these included in your days, so then all you have to bring is a smile and sense of adventure!
Just under an hour travel by boat from Cairns, Green Island is a beautiful 6000 year old rainforest covered coral cay, located within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and is only 27km off the coast. With white sandy beaches, easy rainforest nature walks, and day use facilities, this small tropical Island provides a relaxed island experience with easy snorkelling direct from the beach.
Just under an hour travel by boat from Cairns, Fitzroy Island is the larger of the three islands, with mountainous terrain and a coral beach (recommended to wear reef shoes). Walking tracks in the national park provide visitors with the opportunity to explore a range of vegetation communities and scenic landscapes. There are four walks available, ranging from 45mins return to 3hrs so a great island for those that are adventurous. For those that prefer to relax, you can simply sit back and take in the beauty of Fitzroy Islands or enjoy the snorkellling from the beach.
Frankland Island Cruises is the exclusive commercial operator licensed to visit the untouched beauty of the uninhabited Frankland Islands. Departing south of Cairns in Deeral, experience a calm water river cruise along the scenic Mulgrave River, perfect way to begin your day! From the mouth of the river it is just a short 35 minute boat ride to the Great Barrier Reef. Our destination is Normanby Island in the beautiful Frankland Islands National Park Island Group where you have up to 4 hours to explore and enjoy this natural paradise, above and below the water.
