A coral cay on the Great Barrier Reef. The island is almost 30 kilometres from Cairns, but nowadays modern catamarans cover this distance in 45 minutes. The main attraction on Green Island is Marineland Melanesia which is an art gallery, aquarium and crocodile farm. At the end of the Jetty is the Marine Observatory, a good place to see corals.
Fitzroy Island is larger than Green Island and 45 minutes form Cairns. Fitzroy has a resort with less obvious coral and much more vegetation than Green Island.
