Green Island – AM

Green Island is our first option on this fantastic tour package.  A beautiful coral cay on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef off the Queensland coast from the city of Cairns.

First thing you need to know about the island is that its a tropical paradise surrounded by pristine white sandy beaches.  Second, some lifeguards patrol the beach and its always best to swim between the flags.  Then when the beach gets to hot take a walk through Green Islands own rainforest.

Green Island is a National Marine Park uniquely rain-forested and surrounded by white sandy beaches and magnificent coral reefs and abundant marine life.

Cairns Wildlife Dome was also known as the cities Zoo – PM.

Next The Cairns Wildlife Dome is a  spectacular all-weather wildlife exhibit enclosed by a 20-metre high glass dome on top of Cairns iconic Reef Hotel Casino.

While you are in the Dome, you can cuddle a koala.  During your visit, you can meet some  Australian animals and birds.  As well as the awesome high ropes course.
