As the title says, it was sad and run down, not much to see or do unless you love to snorkel and sadly the reef is also sad and run down at present.

Stayed here for a night with friends and after 4.30 when the crowds left we loved it. Nice rooms, good beds , quality food and friendly service on a peaceful island. Shame it ended at 9.30 the next morning! ,but that's life. Recommended.

unless you like to laze on a beach or snorkel for half a day then a full day tour is too much. Half day 1 to 5pm is plenty.

Green Island is one of the nearest islands to Cairns. The reef surrounding it is still worth a visit. There are several boats a day to the island. Beaches and swimming is also good. There are restaurants and cafes on the island. Worth a visit.

We took the 1/2 day cruise to Green island and thoroughly enjoyed it. The ferry over and back was comfortable. The submarine and glass bottom boat tours were excellent with friendly informative staff and guides

We had the best day out at Green Island. The snorkeling, exploring, visiting the crocodile and turtle enclosure and having a really delicious lunch at the cafe were not to be missed.
