Green Island Resort, Green Island

Located on Green Island, 27 kilometres from Cairns in Tropical North Queensland, Green Island Resort is the only five star resort on a coral cay within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Nestled among the rainforest and secluded from the day visitor facilities, Green Island Resort offers a unique blend of luxurious accommodation and unparalleled access to the magnificent Great Barrier Reef, lush rainforest, and a spectacular array of bird and marine life. The resort has achieved international recognition as one of the most environmentally sensitive tourist developments in the world.

The resort has just 46 air-conditioned suites, each featuring aromatic timbers and private balconies with either rainforest or pool views. It also boasts a Day Spa for indulgent massage and beauty treatments, and an award winning restaurant where the menu changes daily.

House guests enjoy a variety of free activities including use of snorkelling and non-motorised beach equipment, guided rainforest walks, evening nature walks, glass bottom boat tours, daily fish feeding and entry to the world’s first underwater observatory.

By day, house guests benefit from the large range of optional island activities available. Includes Great Barrier Reef day tours, introductory and certified diving, snorkel trips, helmet diving, parasailing and scenic helicopter flights.

Transfers to Green Island aboard a modern Great Adventures’ fast catamaran are included in room rates. Island transfers are also available by helicopter and seaplane.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
