The island is located on the Great Barrier Reef and is only a short 45 minute catamaran or ferry ride from Cairns city. Green Island Resort has easy access for guests with mobility restrictions as the island has a level timber boardwalk through the island’s rainforest, and flat paths through out the island’s main amenities including the restaurants, pool area, and Crocodile Habitat attraction ‘Marineland Melanesia’ and the island resort itself. Whether you decide to visit for the day or stay overnight, your time on Green Island can be as busy or as laid back as you like. With the range of activities on offer at Green Island you will be able to explore the island from a scenic helicopter flight, the beach and the crystal clear water.
