Green Island Resort
Green Island via Cairns
Green Island QLD

An ideal destination for families, Green Island Resort is one of the most ecologically sensitive resorts on the Great Barrier Reef and is the only coral cay in the Great Barrier Reef with a rainforest. Here you will discover an intimate haven nestled amongst the rainforest and cleverly secluded from the remainder of the island and day visitor facilities. To further enhance the island experience, Oiled Massage Salon provides a range of massage options including Shiatsu and Reflexology to unwind and rejuvenate during a tropical island retreat. Complimentary internet access available from the Coral Cay guest lounge and nearby private resort pool only. Situated on Australia's beautiful Great Barrier Reef just 45 minutes off- shore from Cairns, Green Island is a small coral cay of 15 hectares surrounded by a magnificent coral reef, and one of Australia's premier environmental heritage sites.
