About Green Island Resort

Green Island is a beautiful 6000 year old coral cay situated in the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. It is an iconic tourist destination popular with international and domestic day visitors and is home to the eco-sensitive Green Island Resort.

Green Island Resort is part of the multi-award winning Quicksilver Group. With just 46 rooms, the 4 Star Green Island Resort offers a unique reef and rainforest environment, complemented with the luxuries of an island resort. When the last day visitor ferry departs to the mainland, the island becomes an exclusive retreat. The Resort also manages the island’s day visitor facilities, restaurant and food outlets.

We are a close team and pride ourselves on first class customer service providing a quality and memorable experience for our island guests. A small community of Resort staff live on the island, with other positions commuting daily from nearby Cairns on a fast 45 minute catamaran journey.
