Cairns Islands and Resorts

Cairns is recognised as one of the world’s best holiday destinations for guests that have the life-long desire to swim, snorkel and scuba dive amongst brilliant coral and colourful marine life. Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is a “World Heritage” listed icon and is the world’s largest reef structure spanning approximately 2300 km or 1300 miles of ocean from Bundaberg in southern Queensland to Papua New Guinea which is located past the northern tip of Australia and covers an area of around 35 million hectares.

The Great Barrier Reef is said to be host to around 450 types of corals, 1500 types of fish and 4000 types of molluscs and it is also said that there are more different species of animals and plants in a cubic metre of the Great Barrier Reef than in any other environment in the world so no wonder absolutely millions of visitors flock to Cairns each year for their holidays to see this world re-known icon!

Currently there are two holiday resort Islands that lay off the city of Cairns and they are Green Island and Fitzroy Island.

Green Island Resort

Green Island is home to the closest island resort to the mainland and is just a relaxing 45 or 90 minute cruise (dependant on the boat booked) or 27 km (16 miles) from the Reef Fleet Terminal in Cairns. This island resort is managed by the Quicksilver Group of Companies and offers 46 suites nestled amongst the rainforest canopy perfectly secluded from the islands day visitor facilities for total peace and privacy.

Green Island is a coral cay that has been built up over millions of years by the movement of sand and the oceans currents building up layers of old coral and sand together that birds get drawn to for rest stops on their journeys over the ocean. As they rest here they also contribute to the formation of the island as their droppings help cement the sand together and also help to provide nutrients and seeds to grow the rainforest that inhabits this beautiful island that visitors enjoy today.
