Green Island Tours from Cairns

Surrounded by white sand beaches and the beautiful coral gardens of the Great Barrier Reef, Green Island is an idyllic coral cay located only 15 nautical miles offshore from Cairns. It offers the best elements of the tropics in one destination: beautiful island beaches, shady emerald rainforest and a world-renowned coral reef. Your day on Green Island can be as active or relaxing as you want. Choose between resting on the beach, snorkelling, swimming or indulging in some of the many activities available.

Visit Marineland Melanesia – Croc Park
which is a family-run business on Green Island for over 40 years. On display is one of the world’s largest collections of Melanesian Tribal Artifacts, an amazing Aquarium display and a gift shop.

This tour explains the symbiotic relationship of these warriors, the curtailed ceremonies of these two tribes and the connectivity of this iconic island to the ancient seascape. Your indigenous guides have been given special approval from their elders to share this story with all who come on this tour.
