About Green Island 

Green Island is a coral cay formed over thousands of years by building sand and coral rubble. The island is a unique rainforest environment covered in tropical forests and, as a result, supports an array of birds and insects.

The surrounding coral reef is home to many kinds of corals, clams, fish and stingrays, to name a few.  Consequently, it is a popular area for Green Sea Turtles and the Hawksbill turtle, so you may be lucky enough to see one while snorkelling.

Guru-Gula Gungandji is the indigenous people of this island and surrounding reefs.  To them, Green Island is actually known as Wunyami.

Where is Green Island?

Green Island is only 27km northeast of Cairns and approximately 45 minutes by boat.  It is a National Park and home to over 120 native plant species and birdlife.  Coral Gardens and marine life are abundant and waiting for you to explore.

Plan your day to Green Island

Stroll through tropical rainforest, laze on white sandy beaches, swim, dive or snorkel. There is a wide range of optional activities to experience on Green Island. Scuba dive, join a snorkel excursion, not to mention walk on the ocean floor with Seawalker helmet diving.

We recommend taking part in the Self Guided Eco Island Walk to gain insight into the flora, and their Indigenous uses.

Green Island Half-Day Tour departs from Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal.   Choose from several departure times on offer.
