Green Island Adventure (104)

The only issue was the birds

The only issue was the birds and the mess they left, not that its anyones fault but it was the only thing that let the island down, I thought anyway.

We had a fabulous day

We had a fabulous day on our Travstar trip to Green Island. The boat trip, glass bottom boat, snorkeling, rainforest walk, everything was just wonderful. Enjoyed by grandkid, grandma & parents alike. Highly recommended.

There were lots of fish

We had a very good time on Green Island. There were lots of fish swimming around when we were snorkeling. The island was clean and tidy.

Amazing Green Island

Love Green Island. We booked just the ferry, round trip (no extras). Was nice to not have a schedule on the island and flexibility to choose what (if anything) we wanted to do/when.

Great service

Great service and a great trip. Was advised well in advance of maintenance on Skyrail on original booked day which allowed easy change to suit our time in FNQ.

Bus driver was excellent even dropped us back at ship

Well organised tour was easy to find where we had to be picked up and bus driver was excellent even dropped us back at ship saving that extra walk would definitely recommend company to friends. Lyn Seeber

Enjoyed the rail trip to Kuranda and the Skyrail back. Staff at the Skyrail were really helpful when we wanted to come back early. Coach drivers were great on transfers to and from our accommodation.
