Green Island Resort
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.
