While the phrase "the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef" applies to many of Australia's destinations offering easy access to this World Heritage listed wonder of the world, Cairns is a top contender. With luxuries of a modern metropolitan city paired with stunning surrounding natural beauty and a delightful tropical climate almost all year round, if you've never visited this Queensland gem, now's the time. Green Island, the only coral cay on the Great Barrier Reef with a rainforest growing on top, is home to 126 native plant species, colourful birdlife and unforgettable coral gardens. About 15 hectares in size (that's about 37 acres), you'll find plenty to do on this island paradise.
The Shangri-la Cairns, like its many sisters hotels, is the epitome of luxury located right on the Marina with glistening panoramas of the water. Your three-night stay will take place in the exquisite comfort of a Superior Sea View Room with breathtaking views of Trinity Bay. More than a perfectly primed position, the Shangri-la Cairns also offers elegant waterfront dining and a whole bundle of upmarket facilities and services. After three nights here via return high speed catamaran transfers, you'll enjoy three nights at the superb Green Island Resort in an Island Suite. Each suite is elegantly appointed and comes complete with a private balcony and either rainforest or pool views. One of the most unique destinations in Tropical North Queensland, the Green Island Resort is a must-visit property.
