Green Island Resort

When planning your next Australian holiday, whether you are looking for cruises from Sydney or indeed a QLD holiday, it would be hard to do better than Green Island Resort. Located within the Great Barrier Reef, just 45 minutes out from Cairns, Green Island Resort is the peak of luxury leisure travel. During your stay you’ll find yourself surrounded by wild, untamed nature, yet still in the lap of luxury.

Well-appointed rooms offer every convenience to even the most discerning travellers. Tiki-style furniture, hardwood floors, and wooden slat blinds set the perfect island ambiance. Green Island Resort has rooms for anyone, whether couples and honeymooners, solo voyagers, or the whole family.

A holiday in Australia to a luxury Queensland island resort such as this, is a much different option from some of the other travel options also available, including: European river cruise, a holiday to North America, or even a trip to Asia.

You’ll never lack for things to do on the island. Take a guided tour through the lush interior. The rainforest will come alive around you as you venture in. Learn about the unique plants and animals that make up this tropical ecosystem. And meet Cassius, the world’s largest captive crocodile and Green Island’s most famous resident. Accessible paths are available for seniors and disabled guests.

Or, just spend the day on the beach. Long stretches of unspoilt white sand let you truly get away from it all. Stake out a spot, get the suntan oil on, and let the sea breeze and lapping waves carry you away. Unwind even more with an afternoon massage from world class massage therapists. An evening cocktail from one of the excellent bartenders is the cherry on top of a perfect day at the beach.

No trip here would be complete without some off-island activities. Take out a kayak or book a dive or snorkeling trip. View the reef in dry comfort from a glass bottom boat. Or go airborne for a bird’s eye view with para sailing or a helicopter tour.

Green Island Resort is luxury Australian tourism at its finest. Green Island is calling, get up and go!
