Horse Riding Cairns and Green Island

This tremendous full day package of Green Island and Horse Riding has you snorkelling and swimming in the morning and then Horseriding through the rainforest in the afternoon!  A great day out for everyone


Green Island

Green Island is a beautiful coral cay within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, 45 minutes ferry trip from Cairns.

This tropical island is covered in rainforest and surrounded by sandy beaches and coral reefs.

See Green Island your way choose between glass-bottom boat tour or use of snorkelling equipment.

The friendly crew will help you to organise your day on the journey out to maximise your time on Green Island.

Once on the island, you can relax on the beach, take a walk through the rainforest or experience the reef with your snorkel gear or glass-bottom boat.

There are no designated snorkel sessions, so you will have the freedom to spend as much or as little time in the water as you like.

There are multiple options for lunch – visit one of the restaurants on the island or pack your picnic.

Horse Riding Cairns

Visit a working sugar cane farm and an 18-acre billabong abundant with native wildlife. You will meet resident geese, peacocks and ducks while exploring the area.

This tour offers a safe and relaxing way to meander through mangrove wetland, rainforest pockets, sugarcane fields and native bush.

The horses are friendly, with a calm nature that suits riders of all ages and skill levels.

No experience necessary.
