Green Island What’s On –
Time your visit for October and join the annual Great Adventures Green Island Ocean Swim. This long-running event sees competitors taking on 500m, 1.5km and 3km swims in the sparkling waters off Green Island. Events are open to swimmers 12 years and over, and a ‘Nippers/Beginners’ swim also takes place parallel to the beach. Enjoyable for competitors and spectators alike.
During the Australian winter months of July and August, magnificent humpback whales are regularly sighted on the journey to Green Island. Some travellers can be lucky enough to sight these majestic creatures while on the way to and from Green Island, but dedicated whale watching tours can also be arranged in the waters off Green Island with Cairns Whale Watching Tours
