Luxury Accommodation on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef

Green Island Accommodation is a boutique luxury resort located at Green Island, just 45 minutes off Cairns, in the heart of the UNESCO-listed Great Barrier Reef.

Green Island accommodation on a tropical island getaway.

It is a great place to unwind and relax, surrounded by white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters.  Snorkelling, windsurfing, and kayaking are free for all island guests.

Surprisingly, it is only a short 45-minute cruise from Cairns to Green Island.  Paradise has never been so easy to reach.

On arrival, a Green Island Resort team member will meet and escort you on a quick tour before checking into your suite.

It is time to relax, explore Green Island, and enjoy a bite to eat, swim in the Coral Sea, snorkelling, or catch the sun while relaxing on Green Island’s beach.  You will undoubtedly be in paradise!

In the afternoon, wander down to the jetty and see the fish feed before enjoying complimentary sunset drinks on the beach.

Dine at the  Green Island Resort

For dinner, head to Emerald’s Restaurant and enjoy a delicious meal, or on the other hand, you might prefer room service.

Then grab your torch from your room and join the stargazing night tour.  Because of the lack of city lights, what you can see in the night sky is incredible!

After you check out your Green Island Accommodation in the morning, you can still enjoy all the facilities at Green Island Resort until your departure.  With this in mind, you can access shower and change facilities and the Coral Cay Guest Lounge.
