We were then off to Cairns to explore Green Island. We booked a beach bungalow at Ellis Beach. This was right on the beach which was empty quite a lot and we had some beautiful sunsets. Ellis Beach Bungalows are located halfway between Cairns and Port Douglas on the Captain Cook Highway.
The beachfront bungalows are old fashioned but provide some of the best ocean views in Tropical North Queensland. It was so hot and sticky, that the air con in the bungalow had little or no effect. We were visiting Cairns in the worst time for the weather. It was just very uncomfortable and we would not visit again in the summer months We also visited Green Island, and experience a semi-submersible coral viewing tour and walked through the national park. Green Island Great Barrier Reef Tours are one of the most popular things to do whilst in Cairns. Only 45 minutes from Cairns, this tropical Island is a beautiful coral cay on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef with unique island rain forests, surrounded by white sandy beaches & magnificent coral reefs and abundant marine life.
