Welcome to the Great Barrier Reef
One of Australia’s most remarkable natural gifts, the Great Barrier Reef is blessed with the breathtaking beauty of the world’s largest coral reef. The reef contains an abundance of marine life and comprises of over 3000 individual reef systems and coral cays and literally hundreds of picturesque tropical islands with some of the world’s most beautiful sun-soaked, golden beaches.
Welcome to the Cableway
The Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is an absolute must-do when visiting the Cairns region. This exciting mode of travel takes you from Cairns – suspended high up over the emerald rainforest below – all the way to the quaint mountain village of Kuranda. For 7.5 kilometers, you’ll be awestruck as you glide just meters above the canopy of this World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforest in a comfortable regular or glass-bottomed gondola cabin. Along the way, you’ll be able to stop at two mid-stations to view the rainforest from different perspectives on a series of platforms and boardwalks and learn of this ancient wonder at the Rainforest Interpretation Centre.
Welcome to the Green Island
The paradisaical Green Island is another unique island oasis – one of the Great Barrier Reef’s best. With Island activities ranging from inspirational walks through the dense tropical rainforest, relaxing in the sun on the stunning beaches to scuba diving, snorkelling, and other aquatic activities – Green Island has everything. If you’d like to experience a bit of opulence, the Green Island Resort is open to all, allowing you to browse its boutique shops, take a dip in the pool, enjoy a meal in beautiful surroundings or hop in a refreshing shower after a day in the ocean. You can hire a canoe or paddle board, visit the Island’s Marineland Melanesia’s Nautical Museum or get up close to some live crocodiles!
Quicksilver was founded in 1979 with one vessel, a catamaran, which took guests to the Low Isles. This was the first ever commercial trip to these idyllic coral cays, and visitors coming to the small fishing village of Port Douglas, just north of nearby Cairns, were quick to embrace the concept. Just a few years later in 1983, we pioneered Australia’s first true Outer Barrier Reef cruise, travelling right to the ribbon reefs at the outer edge of the Continental Shelf – one of the very best locations to experience the full majesty and elemental force of this unique natural wonder.
