Best attraction in Cairns when weather is nice sunny

We had heard mixed reviews about the island but we were pleasantly surprised. The beach and water were amazing. The resort was good too. We did one one-day tour but wished we stayed there for at least a couple of days. Already making plans to go back this year. Hopefully the weather will be good again ☀️

We did Green Island full day cruise with glass bottom boat ride

The crew members were very helpful and polite. It was a rough day in the sea. They helped all the passengers to comfort. Despite of a very rough sea and hot weather, we enjoyed Green Island at our pace. Glass Bottom boat was the highlight. We saw many alive colourful corals, turtles and fish. It was a good introduction to the reef. There is not much to do on the island itself. A short eco-tour and a crocodile centre. We didn't go to the crocodile centre as we thought it was not value for money but a family with kids would have enjoyed it. Overall it was a good experience provided by the tour operators.

Green Island is an amazing place to experience its family-friendly for all ages.

The island is like paradise, with so many pretty fish and turtles, the kids snorkelled with turtles, and the glass bottom boat experience was so much fun! The water is so clear and they even do a fish feeding around lunchtime and in the afternoon it is so cool to see.
