A visit to Green Island will bring you to the tropical paradise on the Great Barrier Reef. Just 27 km (17 mi) offshore from Cairns, this small, sandy island formed on the surface of a coral reef. Snorkel and dive in the cool waters over colorful coral and sealife. Go on a glass-bottom boat or semisubmerged submarine to see the underwater views of starfish, turtles, shells, and fish. Follow the boardwalk through the thick, emerald rainforest to reach the crocodile farm. Rent a locker for your belongings at the island, so that you can explore the place without worry. Take a look at our Cairns trip itinerary planner to schedule your visit to Green Island and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Very beautiful island, worth visiting. Food and drinks are expensive. Consider bringing your own.
Nice! Some nice coral reef to see close to shore, but the real good stuff is further out.
