Day trippers and tourists staying in Cairns will enjoy the unspoilt tropical cay of Green Island, a spectacular island location situated in the world famous Great Barrier Reef. Being so close to the coast of Cairns makes this a popular destination for locals and visitors staying in the tropical North Queensland city.

At Green Island, you can enjoy the fun activities such as taking a ride on the glass bottom boat, walking around the island’s stunning beaches (which takes roughly 20 minutes), snorkelling and swimming in the clear seawater, and exploring the island’s beautiful rainforest and wildlife. Even taking the cruise from Cairns is a fun and exciting ride.

Don’t forget to witness the breathtaking coral reef and marine life of the Great Barrier Reef under the sea – snorkelling at Green Island is not to be missed! A visit to Green Island is already a satisfying way to experience and see a piece of the spectacular Great Barrier Reef. For families and groups of friends, Green Island is the perfect day trip in Cairns.
