The Green Island Resort prides itself in being “green by name… green by nature”, therefore several environmental efforts have been initiated to operate in a sustainable manner. The Green Island Resort has its Australian Advanced Eco-Certification and is setting benchmarks in Australia’s Tourism and Hospitality Industry for sustainable and environmentally friendly operations. The following are some of the eco-sensitive measures that Green Island Resort takes to ensure environment is the first priority. In the construction of the resort there was a consorted effort to keep the natural environment well intact, little vegetation was cleared and boardwalks were built to avoid damage to plants and foliage. The resort was built around large trees, encompassing the trees into the natural design. None of the resort’s buildings protrude above the rainforest canopy, keeping a natural camouflaged presence. A desalination plant was built in 2001 that produces 55,000 litres of freshwater daily; this ensures that the islands underground water is not disturbed. The resort was built without gutters so the natural rainwater can fall on the surrounding foliage to replenish the moisture levels to the islands vegetation. In terms if sewage, the resort has one of the most sophisticated tertiary sewage plants in Australia. The resort’s power supply is provided by four diesel generators that are enclosed in a sound proof building to prevent noise pollution; these generators serve another purpose of heating water in the cooler months. The waste produced on Green Island is barged back to the mainland and materials are re-used and recycled at all costs. Green Island Resort has been awarded several awards commemorating its innovative waste management systems including the winner of Australia’s Cleanest Beach Challenge, a Resource Conservation Award and a Waste Management Award.

After a morning of exploring this tropical paradise, relax in the comfortable sofas with a tropical juice or perhaps a tea or coffee as you take in the tropical ambience. Open from 10am the Driftwood Bar is the perfect place to sit around the bar and enjoy a chilled beverage, or maybe have a tailor made cocktail to suite your mood! A Cellar Masters list is also available if you wish to purchase a special wine for the occasion.
Check travel and airline websites for sales and promotional fares. This may seem obvious but I often don't bother checking websites for flight discounts because I never find ones that apply to me. They can be so specific that I don't know how anyone can cash in on the deals! But if you look for offers on travel agency and online discount websites, you're more likely to find a general "money off your purchase" sale. Our favourites are PayPal Offers because they have loads of travel deals that change regularly. But, then again, we are a little bit obsessed with buying flights with PayPal. (for good reason!) There are loads of alternative voucher websites out there though, so if PayPal isn't your thing, you can try Groupon or other voucher websites. So, the cheapest day to buy flights may just be when you find the best deal!
