Stay and play on a tropical island resort on the Great Barrier Reef.

Green Island Resort is a boutique luxury resort just 45 minutes off Cairns in the heart of the UNESCO-listed Great Barrier Reef.

A stay in this resort gives you access to all the island offers. Green Island is a 6000-year-old coral cay that combines white sandy beaches and lush rainforest. There is a wide array of activities for swimmers and non-swimmers alike — a beautiful place to unwind one day and enjoy adventurous activities the next. Green Island is the perfect destination for a wide range of holidaymakers.

There are a plethora of activities available on Green Island. Snorkelling, windsurfing and kayaking are complimentary for guests. There are also complimentary guided activities, including star gazing and nature walks among the ancient rainforest trees and lush beaches. You can even take a glass-bottom boat tour through the crystal-clear water.

Sun loungers and umbrellas are available for those who prefer a more relaxing tropical beach holiday. Kick back on the white sand and enjoy the sunshine and tropical climate of Australia’s beautiful tropical north. Don’t forget the fish feeding and sunset drinks.  


Green Island Resort is in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. The resort grounds feature 46 excellently-appointed suites, several dining options and even a massage salon. A pool, free Wifi, and fully equipped guest lounge complete everything you need for the perfect island holiday.

All you need to bring with you is an overnight bag with personal items such as swimwear and sunglasses, cash or credit card for purchases, and a camera to capture the lifelong memories you’ll be sure to make.
