Honeymoon guide to Green Island

Discover Green Island, a tiny coral cay covered with a scenic rainforest, edged by a gorgeous white-sand beach and surrounded by a marine park teeming with sea life – the perfect location for a honeymoon or romantic getaway holdiay.

What to do and see on Green Island

With more than 700ha of offshore reefs, Green Island is the perfect spot to dive and snorkel above pristine coral gardens. If you don’t want to get wet, view the underwater world in a glass bottom boat or at the Underwater Observatory located on the island’s jetty.

Explore the 10ha island by foot on a 2km-long trail that circles the island or head inland to experience the spectacular rainforest. Try to spot some of the 60 species of birds that live here, including egrets, ospreys, sea eagles and woodswallows, and some of the more than 130 species of plant and tree.

Find your own secluded spot on the powder-white sand to sunbathe and cool off with a refreshing swim.

Where to stay

Indulge your creature comforts at the island’s only resort, the 5-star Green Island Resort, nestled amid lush rainforest just metres from the beach.
