Green Island Resort

Just 27 km from Cairns, 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.

With just 46 rooms, the 4.5 Star multi-award winning 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.
