We stayed on Green Island for 3 night with our two children and had a fabulous time. The island is beautiful and the snorkelling is lovely just off the beach and perfect for the children, we saw loads of turtles and many other beautiful fish. The island does get very busy in the day from about 9.30 when the day... More

I pays 2700$ for 3 night for 3 adults in green island. To be honest it was for nothing. Activities was average specially the free activities like the class boat, the fish feeding, the afternoon drink. Overpriced for all the rest like the diving, see walk, photos (you can't take or make a video during diving or see walk, be... More

We had a wonderful 3 days/2 nights at the resort. We have a 3 and 6 year old and it was a wonderful way for us to explore with them, from snorkelling and glass bottom boats to walking on the pretty beaches and checking out the seeds and shells had been washed up. Our room was very nice, spacious with... More

Before you book your stay at the resort, understand that YES there are "day-trippers" to the island and yes the resort grounds are more crowded during the day... but the true beauty of this place happens after the last ferry leaves for the mainland. If you are looking for lively nightlife, this is not the resort for you. However, if... More

Green island is a magical place with so much interesting flora and fauna. Staying just a couple of nights, we swam with turtles, snorkelled the day away, wandered round he little island and did all the evening walks and things the resort laid on. The weather wasn't totally kind to us with clouds and wind but we still saw quite... More

Everything really very good on Green Is, Water was full of life, plenty of fish and lots of turtles! A real shame the reef here is pretty poor. Food in the restaurant was of a very high standard. Other facilities for day trippers was pretty well catered for and most pricing well balanced.

It is green, but the name Green is from the environment, but was named in 1770 by Captain Cook after the astronomer on-board, Charles Green. We had booked an 8 days stay at the resort, but we escaped on day 7 of our 8 days at the resort. The island caters mainly for Japanese day tourist, who are very pushy,... More

Had a wonderful stay. Loved the island and the ammenities. Walked/swam/waded around the island...beautiful. Rooms were very good although, the coffee/tea cups are a little on the small side. Dinner was excellent....best meal I have had in quite some time.

We a regulars staying here many times. The Resort is terrific and even better when the day trippers leave on the last boat back to Cairns. Lovely quiet rooms that are clean and exceptional.
