3-night Green Island (Wunyami) Wellness Getaway

Cairns & Great Barrier Reef, Queensland

Staying in a superbly appointed Island Suite at this boutique eco resort, this three-night retreat is the prescription to unwind and reconnect with nature, surrounded by reef and rainforest.

As ancient as Green Island, estimated to be over 6000 years old, the Gunggandji and Yidinji Traditional Owners have a strong connection to this island and sea country. Join the Wunyami Cultural Walking Tour and discover the island through the eyes of your indigenous guide. Feel the spirit of the rainforest, learn about its traditional bush food and medicinal uses, participate in traditional fire lighting techniques and the cultural importance of clay as you are invited to paint your face.

Stepping from the rainforest to the reef… With the Great Barrier Reef at your feet, snorkel from the soft sandy beaches and view the corals and inhabitants that call it home from a glass bottom boat tour. With seagrass beds, the island is also a major sea turtle habitat. If you prefer to just lounge on the beach or by the private pool, there will be a deck chair with your name on it.

Daily breakfasts, delightful sunset drinks each evening, and a gourmet sunset dinner hamper to enjoy are all included in your stay.

Making a difference

  • Green Island Resort is as Green by name as by nature. From the way it is built to commitment to sustainable practices.
  • Solar energy now supplies one quarter of Green Island needs.
  • Innovative waste management practices are turning food waste into organic fertiliser and glass into sand, thanks to a food digester and glass crusher.
  • The aim is to close the loop with an efficient cycle that averts landfill, reduces emissions and provides real, tangible end-use products.
  • The Resort’s tertiary sewage treatment plant minimises impact on the environment and produces safe, high-quality effluent for use in toilet flushing, irrigation and fire-fighting reserves.
  • The Resort’s desalination plant provides drinking water and ensures the Island’s water table, vital for the rainforest, is untouched.
