Every visitor to Cairns should endeavour to make a trip to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the natural wonders of the world and one of Australia’s most prized attractions. The Great Barrier Reef isn’t the kind of sight that you can marvel at from afar, you need to get right into the thick of it. Divers and snorkelers have been drawn here by the stunning coral gardens, majestic reefs and magnificent marine life that call this place home for decades.
However, for those not so confident in the water, a trip to Green Island in the middle of the Barrier Reef is a great way to get a feel for the magic of the place. And the good news is divers can immerse themselves in the water from here too, so load up your private bus with divers and non-divers alike and make your way to Green Island for a day of fun and adventure.
