The Guru-Gulu Gungandji Aboriginal people welcome you to Green Island—Wunyami—and ask that you take care of their special place. The island and reef hold traditional and contemporary cultural significance for the Gungandji people, who have an active role in looking after these values for future generations.


27 km offshore from Cairns.
