The Tour

Green Island is a short  20 minute flight from the Cairns Heliport and you'll see Cairns City and Marina from the air before following the coast line of False Cape and Cape Grafton and then turning out to sea. This spectacular scenic helicopter flight gives you the opportunity to see Green Island from the air and visit other Reefs in the area before touching down at Green Island's Helipad. On arrival the helicopter operator's ground crew will meet you and brief you on the package's inclusions and attractions! 

There are a number of activities available on Green Island which might attract your attention; you may wish to go snorkeling and take the glass bottom boat, as both activities are included in your package.

There's also a host of other activities incluing the option to visit a working crocodile farm at Marine Melanesia (entry at own expense) or hire a variety of craft from Green Island's Beach Hire including, paddle-ski and canoes (at additional cost). Alternately there is always the option to enjoy the peace and serenity of Green Island by finding a shady tree around the quieter parts of the island and lazing on the island's sandy white beaches with turquoise waters as a stunning backdrop!

This fun half-day is yours to enjoy, to do as little or as much as you please.
