Welcome

The Guru-Gulu Gungandji Aboriginal people welcome you to Green Island—Wunyami—and ask that you take care of their special place. The island and reef hold traditional and contemporary cultural significance for the Gungandji people, who have an active role in looking after these values for future generations.

Location

27km offshore from Cairns.

What's special

This small rainforest-clad coral cay is surrounded by coral reefs. It is one of the most accessible and popular islands on the Great Barrier Reef.
