Green Island

A small coral cay just 45 minutes offshore from Cairns, Green Island is situated on Australia's spectacular Great Barrier Reef, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. At just 15 hectares of National Park, Green Island is one of Australia's premier environmental heritage sites.

Acclaimed for its environmental protection focus while remaining sensitive to the needs of its visitors, Green Island is the most exclusive and ecologically harmonious islands on the reef. This amazing unique holiday destination is famous for its unique reef and rainforest setting as it is the only coral cay in the Great Barrier Reef with a rainforest ecosystem.

Green Island accommodation is secluded and elegant with a strong focus on the environment. Nestled amid lush rainforest, guests can enjoy private Island and Reef suites with balconies from which to view the stunning rainforest and pools.

There are plenty of things to see and do on Green Island. Use its privacy and seclusion as a chance to relax or if you're up for a bit more adventure, the waters surrounding the island are teeming with a wide variety of marine life and coral. Snorkelling and scuba diving here is truly amazing with different corals found on the Eastern and Western sides of the island.

If you'd prefer to remain dry, but don't want to miss the striking beauty of the reef there are a number of excellent ways for you to view the reef in comfort including a glass bottom boat trip. There is also a small aquarium and crocodile habitat on the island called Marineland Melanesia.
