Green Island Resort Info

Green Island is a beautiful 6000 year old coral cay located in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, just 27km offshore from Cairns. What makes it so special is that of the 300 coral cays in the Great Barrier Reef, Green Island is the only one with a rainforest.  Green Island Resort is your luxury haven, with just 46 suites that are nestled within the rainforest, cleverly secluded from the day visitor facilities.

3 nights on Green Island Resort:

  • Return catamaran ferry transfers from Cairns
  • Full buffet breakfast daily
  • Welcome drink
  • Glass bottom boat tour
  • Rainforest and guided evening nature walk
  • Fish feeding presentation daily
  • Snorkelling equipment
  • Non-motorised beach activities such as kayaking, beach volleyball and windsurfing

The Ultimate Reef Getaway package is also available for a 2 night stay on Green Island Resort with the same inclusions. 

Alternatively, if you have less time it is possible to book a 1 or 2 night stay with breakfast but without package inclusions such as the Outer Barrier Reef trip with Great Adventures. 

Travstar consistently receives excellent feedback from our clients.  Guests are treated like VIP's.
