"Green Island" Green Island by sue_stone

Green Island Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 29 photos

During a short visit to Cairns to see my parents, they suggested we go on a half-day trip to Green Island, which sounded like a great idea to me!

Green Island is a 30-45 minute trip from Cairns by catamaran. Once you get there you can do some snorkelling, stay dry and check out the under-water world from the glass bottom boat, take a wander through the rainforest, or just relax on the beach.

It is a great place to get an introduction to the Great Barrier Reef without having to travel too far from the mainland.

    Sounds like a good deal for $60.00. I really like Green Island but it was awfully hot.

    I've once been to Green Island. I wasn't too convinced about the snorkelling bit myself.

    No swimming?? I guess you didn't take the hair straighteners with you then? ;-))

    This looks a great little spot. I like the sound of the glass bottom boat and the rainforest walk. And it's fun to be first with a comment!
