Locals Discount


We value the support of our local community of Cairns and the surrounding areas. Big Cat appreciate and acknowledge that many locals not only visit Green Island frequently but also recommend us to friends and family that are visiting from interstate and overseas. We therefore offer a year round 30% discount off all our standard packages to locals that live between Cooktown and Townsville. We’ll also throw in a 10% discount for any family or friends travelling with you and also include the free snorkel & Glass bottom boat upgrade.

Simply book via this website and type LOCAL within the Promo code section of the booking form, this will then automatically apply the 30% discount to your booking. If you prefer you can call us on 40510444 and advise us at the time of booking and we’ll apply the discount. If wanting to add family or friends from interstate or overseas, simply make a separate booking and use Promo code LOCALF and again the discount will automatically be applied. Passengers using this discount MUST be travelling with a local on the same departure which will need to be confirmed at Check in.
