Green Island National Park

National Parks and Reserves

This small rainforest-clad coral cay is surrounded by coral reefs and is one of the Great Barrier Reef’s most popular destinations.

A true coral cay, it was formed over thousands of years by the build-up of sand and coral rubble deposited on the calm side of a platform reef. Tropical vine forest covers the island. Palm-fringed sandy beaches slope gently to the clear, blue-green waters of the surrounding reef, which is within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

Stroll around the island’s boardwalks to explore the rainforest and birdlife and find out about the island’s colourful history.

Walk around the island’s beaches to view seabirds and enjoy views over the reef. Relax on the beach and listen to the birds in the forest behind you.

Take a break from the beach and picnic on tables placed in the cool shade of the forest. Swim or snorkel or paddle a kayak in the clear reef waters. Go for a ride in a glass-bottomed boat or join a guided nature walk. Visit Marineland Melanesia Crocodile Habitat.
