Tours and activities on Green Island…


There is so much to do on and around Green Island that a one day visit simply isn’t long enough. Whether you are a water enthusiast, a non-swimmer, a small child or a child at heart there is something for you to do!

Green Island really is GREEN…


The Green Island Resort prides itself in being “green by name… green by nature”, therefore several environmental efforts have been initiated to operate in a sustainable manner. The Green Island Resort has its Australian Advanced Eco-Certification and is setting benchmarks in Australia’s Tourism and Hospitality Industry for sustainable and environmentally friendly operations. The following are some of the eco-sensitive measures that Green Island Resort takes to ensure environment is the first priority. In the construction of the resort there was a consorted effort to keep the natural environment well intact, little vegetation was cleared and boardwalks were built to avoid damage to plants and foliage. The resort was built around large trees, encompassing the trees into the natural design.



None of the resort’s buildings protrude above the rainforest canopy, keeping a natural camouflaged presence. A desalination plant was built in 2001 that produces 55,000 litres of freshwater daily; this ensures that the islands underground water is not disturbed. The resort was built without gutters so the natural rainwater can fall on the surrounding foliage to replenish the moisture levels to the islands vegetation. In terms if sewage, the resort has one of the most sophisticated tertiary sewage plants in Australia. The resort’s power supply is provided by four diesel generators that are enclosed in a sound proof building to prevent noise pollution; these generators serve another purpose of heating water in the cooler months. The waste produced on Green Island is barged back to the mainland and materials are re-used and recycled at all costs. Green Island Resort has been awarded several awards commemorating its innovative waste management systems including the winner of Australia’s Cleanest Beach Challenge, a Resource Conservation Award and a Waste Management Award.

A bit about the history of Green Island…


This beautiful coral island in the Great Barrier Reef has a unique and interesting history. Over 6000 years old, this charming little Island was made up of sand sediments and coral deposits gradually building up until it reached the size it is today. From there winds and birds carried seeds to Green Island creating the start of the vegetated rainforest we see today. Before white-man discovered Green Island, the island was home to Australian native aboriginals who used the island as a fishing base and also as a ceremonial site where men were initiated.



In 1770 Captain James Cook discovered Green Island and named the island after the chief astronomer and observer on his ship, Charles Green. A sea cucumber smoking station was the first industry that presented itself on Green Island in 1857. After years of occasional pleasure cruising to Green Island the Hayes Family started a regular ferry service between Cairns and Green Island in 1924. Declared a National Park in 1948 Green Island was home to many ‘firsts’ in terms of marine-life activities.



Green Island had the first ever glass bottom boat, one of the first underwater observatories, one of the first semi-submarines and the first island-based movie theatre in the world. The Great Barrier Reef was declared a National Marine Park in 1974 and following this a brand new eco-friendly resort replaced the other two resorts that had existed previously.
