Green Island

Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef is one of Queensland’s most beautiful and tranquil Tropical Islands, and being only 45 Minutes across the coral sea from Cairns, it’s very easy to access using one of the daily launches that depart Cairns Port.

You can choose to make a day trip to Green Island or you can book accommodation at The Green Island Resort, which has its own exclusive area on the island.

There are many things to do on the island like Snorkelling, Scuba Diving, and Swimming Pool; there is also a water craft hire outlet so you can indulge in fun water play on top of the water.

You can of course also take a dip in the Coral Sea from one of the stunning beaches of the island. Although Green Island is a small Coral Cay covering no more than 12 Hectares, it sits atop over 700 hectares of coral reef which makes for fantastic Scuba Diving adventures among the coral.

Green Island also has its own small aquarium and crocodile habitat and has crocodile feeding shows daily; the crocodile habitat has some of the largest estuarine crocodiles in captivity.

Bushwalking enthusiasts will thoroughly enjoy the rainforest walks on Green Island, with the tropical flora and rainforest trees that reach up to 25 metres high. Listen to the sounds of the more than 60 species of birds amongst the lush vegetation; making the walk one of those rare peaceful moments that will inspire thoughts of paradise to be sure.

There is a circular track that takes just under an hour to complete and is about 2km long, you can join a guided tour from the resort or make your way around by yourself if you prefer.

Green Island has numerous picnic areas dotted around the island; these picnic areas are often hidden among the trees and provide a delightful sense of privacy allowing for that special family time that rarely seems possible at home.
