Welcome to Green Island.


Green Island is on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

Green Island, a 6000-year-old coral cay in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, is only 45 minutes by fast catamaran from Cairns. It is one of the world’s seven natural wonders. Take a nature walk or snorkel among the coral reefs around this tropical National Park island paradise, where you can explore the abundant marine habitats and vibrant wildlife.

Visitors searching for a relaxing day on the Great Barrier Reef can’t go wrong with this spot.

Green Island tour offers two types of cruises: half-day and full-day. Great Adventures Green Island Reef provides both. We offer half-day tours to those who are pressed for time or want a quick jaunt to the Reef; on the other hand, full-day tours give you the freedom to make the most of your time on Green Island while still getting to see the best of the Great Barrier Reef.

Cairns Zoom and Wildlife Dome

  • High rope course
  • Koala
  • Crocodiles
  • Cockatoos
  • Snakes and frogs

There is no better Cairns attraction than the ZOOM and Wildlife Dome. You’ll find us on the roof of the Reef Hotel Casino, right in the city’s heart.

You can get up and personal with our animals at our immersive wildlife park. We believe that education is the best method to ensure the long-term viability of all these organisms.

Keepers who care for our animals are highly qualified and dedicated to their work.


When giving birth to live offspring, Marsupials fall into the category of mammals that do it very early on. In the mother’s nipples pouch, a tiny embryo crawls from the mother’s birth canal and latches on with its mouth. Depending on the species, this could take several weeks or even months.

The marsupials are a fascinating group of animals that stop by to see them today.


Feathers, a beak without teeth, and hard-shelled eggs distinguish birdsThesese creatures are the last living descendants of feathered dinosaurs, according to legend. One of the most intelligent creatures globally is a parrot because of its ability to communicate through visual signals, cries, and songs.

Please take a closer look at some of our Amphibians’ feathered friends!

An amphibian uses its gills and tail to breathe and move through the water when amphibian is born. On land and in water, that’s how they’ll live out their entire lives. As they grow, they get lungs and legs that they employ for land-based mobility. Amphibians are cold-blooded organisms, which means their body temperature is the same as the surrounding environment.

Learn more about the amphibians in our family of creatures!


Turtles, lizards, snakes, and crocodiles are some of the reptiles that make up this diverse group of animals. The temperature of their bodies changes with the weather, and they also have scales to measure their weight. Laying eggs and giving birth to live offspring are possible reproduction methods for reptiles.

Please find out more about the reptiles that make up most of the animals inhabiting our planet.

If you’re wondering what to do in Cairns, look no further.
