Green Island Resort on the Great Barrier Reef, offers one of the most unique and memorable holiday accommodation locations in Australia. This wonderland of romance, adventure and indulgence is yours to explore.

Once you disembark the boat you will be greeted by one of our resort team, who will introduce you to the island and take you on a short tour before checking into your suite. Porters will deliver your luggage to your room.

Once you’ve settled in the island is yours to explore! For resort guests there are a wide range of complimentary activities as well as several exciting optional activities for those wanting some more adventure. Do as much or as little as you please.

Before you start or after you go exploring you might want to grab a bite to eat. During the day there are a number of dining options available. Join us at our signature Emeralds Restaurant, grab a picnic basket, a snack form Lite Bites, or relax with some room service.

As the day visitors leave the island take the opportunity to join our Activities Officer at the live fish feeding presentation followed by sunset drinks. Later in the evening you’ll have the opportunity to go on an island walk or for some star gazing through a telescope on the beach (depending on the weather).

At any time our 24hr reception is here to help, just pick up the phone and let us know what you need. Room service is available as is pool side service (during the hours of 11:30 to 22:30). Complimentary Wifi is available in the guest lounge as are books, newspapers, games and coffee.

When it comes time to checkout you can still enjoy the island.

Green Island Resort has an Island Suite configured for wheelchair access to the room and bathroom facilities, with the room located in easy access to central facilities and boardwalks.

The island’s day visitor area also has disabled toilet facilities, and paved or wooden boardwalk pathways that are easy for wheelchairs to access. There is a boardwalk that takes you directly through the rainforest into the centre of the Island which is easily accessible. To board the Glass Bottom Boats however, there are some steps into this vessel which may not be suitable.

Great Adventures catamarans for island transfers: The boarding ramp gangways are able to accommodate standard sized wheelchairs, however larger motorised wheelchairs may not be able to be accommodated. Depending on tides and weather conditions, gangways from the vessel to the jetty are sometimes too small for a wheelchair and will at times have a few steps from the end of the gangway to the jetty.
