Marineland Melanesia is owned by the Craig family and has been operating on Green Island since the early 1960’s. Having worked as a crocodile hunter in Papua New Guinea, George Craig also collected a magnificent range of carvings and ancient Primitive Tribal art from the region known as Melanesia which are now are now on display at Marineland Melanesia along with huge live crocodiles, beautiful marine aquariums and giant marine turtles. Also displayed are a number of old and restored marine artefacts and stationary engines.
Marineland also has a wonderful gift and souvenir shop offering a range of exclusive Green Island hand made jewellery. Marineland Melanesia is a must see when on Green Island – located just 17 nautical miles offshore from Cairns in Australia’s World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef.
