Green Island

Green Island is a tiny coral cay lying about 30km from Cairns, in the australian Great Barrier Reef. The island was declared a National Park in 1937, with the waters around it declared a Marine Park in 1974. It offers fabulous rainforest scenery which stretches upto 25 metres high. The rainforest is made up of around 130 different plant species, and 60 different species of bird live there. The reef around Green Island is truly amazing, with a large number of different types of corals and sea creatures within its waters. Green Island és una petita illa a 30 Km de Cairns a la Gran Barrera de Corall australiana. La illa va ser declarada parc nacional al 1937 i parc marí al 1974. Hi creix bosc tropical amb arbres de fins a 25 m d'alçada, unes 130 especies diferents de plantes, i 60 especies diferents d'ocells. Les formacions corallines al voltant de l'illa son realment extraordinaries amb una gran quantitat de tipus de corall i de criatures marines.

This is a great shot Albert. I suppose if the seas rise it will vanish one day!
Albert Perpinyŕ: That's for sure. In fact, most of the reefs in the world are at risk.

This just looks fantastic Albert
Albert Perpinyŕ: It IS fantastic.
Beautiful shot. Are visitors allowed on the island, and did you get to see it from underneath the canopy?
Albert Perpinyŕ: There's a 40 room hotel there where we stayed for 5 days. The whole of the hotel is under the canopy as you can see in the photo.

Waw, jo vull anar-hi. M'agrada molt per la nitidesa i els colors. Sento haver estat tant de temps desconectat perĂł porto una feina terrible amb l'inici de curs. Records a la family. Ens veiem.
