Paradise - - Traveller -

GREEN IS­LAND Take a boat trip to Green Is­land, a small coral atoll ap­prox­i­mately 30 kilo­me­tres east of Cairns, sur­rounded by fring­ing coral reef. A small re­sort with cafe, shops, swim­ming pool and dive shop is the hub for both day-trip­pers and overnight guests. Try scuba div­ing or snorkelling, or, for some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent, hel­met div­ing. Don a hel­met, which looks like the old-fash­ioned pearl diver hel­mets but with a mod­ern up­grade, and walk across the ocean floor with schools of fish swim­ming around your head. Keep an eye out for se­rial photo bomber Gavin, a friendly par­rot­fish who loves his photo taken; he’s fa­mous for his toothy grin. See greenis­land­cairns.com.
