Situated in the heart of the stunning Great Barrier Reef, just 45 minutes off the coast of Cairns, the Green Island Resort promises one of the most mesmerising holiday accommodation experiences in the whole of Australia. Tucked in between tropical rainforests and surrounded by a unique coral cay, there is plenty of things to see and do while relaxing in style.
The experience begins long before you get to the resort with a 45-minute cruise from Cairns. On the journey, you’ll pass stunning sea scenes and get to see the Great Barrier Reef up close.
Once you arrive at the resort, you’ll be welcomed by our team who will give you a brief introduction to the island and give you a short tour before you settle in.
Eating at the Green Island Resort
Grabbing a bite to eat has never been so stylish. At the Green Island Resort, there are several dining options you can indulge in, whether you want to go upmarket at the luxury Emeralds Restaurant, take a pre-made picnic basket out with you to explore, or simply grab a snack from Lite Bites. In addition, there is an expansive room service menu for when you feel like staying in.
Activities at the Green Island Resort
Surrounded by such beautiful scenery means there are plenty of outdoor adventures to get stuck into at the resort. Whether you’re after some heart-pumping adrenalin-based activities or something a little more relaxed, the resort has something for you.
During the day, you can take to the water and try your hand at snorkelling or diving in the Great Barrier Reef. You’ll get up close and personal with some of the region’s most mesmerising sea creatures while learning more about the fascinating history and biology of the area.
You can also take a walk through the lush rainforest around the resort, keeping your eyes peeled for native critters, and you can kayak the coastline to view the island from a different perspective, or hit the skies in a helicopter tour.
For something a little more laidback, check out the resort’s spa for a relaxing massage or facial.
When darkness falls and the day visitors head back to the mainland, you can get stuck into some sunset activities. You can feed the fish at dusk, take sunset drinks with stunning views, stargaze at the incredible clear sky, or take an evening island walk to see the area at a different time of day.
