We are a 'must see' when visiting Green Island!
Marineland Melanesia is a family owned and operated business on Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef making it the only coral cay with Crocodiles. Also on display is one of the world's largest collections of Melanesian Tribal Artifacts, an amazing display of Aquariums and an extensive gift shop!
We are just a short stroll along the path to the left of the jetty. Look out for our iconic shipwreck entrance and Gift Shop!
Green Island has been home for over 40 years and four generations are still living and working here. Over that time much has changed around us on the island, however we are very enthusiastic about retaining the character of our family attraction.
We are very proud to be the only family owned and operated business based on such a popular tourist attraction as Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef.
It is these aspects that make Marineland Melanesia one of a kind and trust you'll find it worth visiting while you are here.
Marineland Melanesia was first established in 1954 as 'Marineland'. In 1971 'Marineland Melanesia' was established when the Craig family brought their amazing collection of Crocodiles and Primitive Tribal Art from the Melanesian Region.
George Craig started out over 40 years ago working in Papua New Guinea, now his life's work is proudly on display alongside our beautiful Reef Aquariums and Marine Turtles, historical nautical relics and a collection of restored stationary engines.
You will feel as if you are somewhere undiscovered - there is nothing quite like it, exploring the unique artifacts of some distant Melanesian jungle as giant Crocodile beasts watch over you. Relax in the calming tropical fish arcade and watch the underwater world go by.
Cassius is the Island's king, he is a 5.48 metre saltwater crocodile and has also called Marineland home for almost 30 years.
See some amazing sealife in our beautiful Reef Aquariums without even getting wet. You'll see the same fish and coral that you can see in the surrounding waters of the island, as well as some more unique creatures like the deadly Stonefish, cute Clownfish, Epaulette Sharks, Turtles, Lion Fish and Giant Painted Crayfish.
Our Gift Shop is unique. You'll find something to suit everyone, and our prices are the most competitive on the island - check us out - you will love what you see!
Our beautiful range of individually chosen gemstone and coral jewellery is very popular.
