THE EXPERIENCE

Located in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, just a 45 minute boat ride from Cairns or 20 minutes by scenic helicopter, Green Island is an accessible island paradise. Surrounded by reef filled with diverse marine life Green Island is unique being the only coral cay on the Great Barrier Reef with its own rainforest. 

Laze on the beach, swim, dive, snorkel, take a walk in the rainforest, ride the Glass Bottom Boat or relax poolside and take advantage of the Islands resort facilities – you will be spoilt for choice on this full or half day experience.

For the ultimate once in a lifetime experience, skip the boat ride and travel in style with a breathtaking Reef-Scenic helicopter transfer!  10 & 15 minute scenic flights are also available from our island based heli pad.  Only from this unique aerial perspective can the vibrant hues of the islands fringing reef, emerald green rainforest and glistening white beaches be truly appreciated – a photo opportunity not to be missed!
