Kuranda Skyrail and Train with Green Island

Green Island – AM

Green Island is a beautiful Coral Cay located in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and just a 45-minute ferry transfer from Cairns, the Gateway to the “Great Barrier Reef”.

Surrounded by white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and coral reefs teeming with marine life, Green Island is unique as it is the only Cay with a rainforest.

During your 3 hours on Green Island, you have a  choice of snorkelling gear or a glass-bottom boat tour and take a stroll along the Rainforest Boardwalks and Explore Green Island’s flora and fauna.

Lunch at own expense
