I have visited Green Island a couple of times but never stayed the night so this Easter I spent a night there with my lovely wife and a few friends and it was fantastic, I will be back. The rooms are luxurious and set in tropical rainforest with views of the pool and you would hardly know the day visitors... More

The Green Island and Resort are the only way to experience the most beautiful beaches and the reef. Fly into Cairns,which is a great community and take the ferry over to the island. We spent three days and two nights and didn't want to leave. The water around the island is as clear as a swimming pool (you can see... More

As long as you are there mid week, out of school holiday times and when the local yobbos are absent. We have loved staying at this resort since it was renovated in the early 1990's. It is beautifully designed and a gorgeous, peaceful and picturesque setting. Although the popular island is a place for all sorts of tourists to enjoy,... More

From the moment we arrived at Green Island, our time there was memorable. The resort was beautiful, rooms were immaculate and modern and the table service and restaurant was faultless. We experienced excellent service from the staff of our boat transfer and the Green Island welcome staff...... until we had a phone call that we had a family emergency at... More

Green Island is an amazing place, only 45 minutes on the boat from Cairns. We have been there 3 times and intend to go back again. Highlights include the beachside lounge chairs, snorkelling, included breakfast, fish feeding, glass bottom boat, night walk and crocodile park. Some tips for your trip: - Don't miss the crocodile feeding at 10:30am & 1:30pm... More

We have just returned from three very pleasant nights on Green Island. Our King Island Room earned a “wow” from my wife, was very nicely furnished, spacious, with a balcony overlooking the gardens. Some rooms have their balcony facing the guest pool, which would have been less private. The volume of day-trippers is a bit of a shock at first... More

Booked a three night stay at the resort to celebrate my wife's 50th Birthday at the end of March 2014 and what a fantastic stay we had. All I can say is Staff - Fantastic Rooms - Fantastic Food - Fantastic Facilities - Fantastic Activities - Fantastic Day Trip Tourists - Not so Fantastic ( but they are only there... More

I found it very run down. The worse thing was the rotten birds, who try to take your food, ad will bite. Get rid of the birds, update the resort . The water and sand are great. Would not go there again --- unless it is updated. Food was good but a bit expensive.

Before 9 a.m. and after 4:30 p.m. We spent 3 nights here and had an amazing time. We were here just after the Chinese New Year which is critical to the planning. The island invites hundreds of day trippers to enjoy the island and some come to connect to another day trip out to the GBR. I would suggest you... More
