Green Island and Horse Riding Package

Combine a fantastic morning on the famous Green Island with a relaxing afternoon of horse riding.

Green Island – AM

Green Island is a beautiful coral cay located on the Great Barrier Reef.

Green Island is a Marine National Park surrounded by sandy beaches and coral reefs and is covered in a unique rainforest.

Your visit will give you 2 hours at Green Island and includes a choice of either snorkelling equipment or a glass bottom boat tour. You will travel out on  a high speed catamaran called “Reef Rocket”, which is a modern comfortable air-conditioned catamaran. It will take approximately 45 minutes each way.

Once on the island, passengers can take part in as many or as few activities available as you like, or simply relax on the beach.

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

Lunch is at your own expense.

Horse Riding – PM

Blazing Saddles is a working sugar cane farm and the property contains an 18 acre billabong, abundant with native birds and amphibious creatures of all shapes and sizes! You will also 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, this is a perfect family adventure. Draw up on horse-back alongside the billabong for a billy tea over a camp fire and the chance to see a croc in the wild!
