Just half an hour by boat out from Cairns is Green Island which is featured in the turtle painting. It is surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Great barrier Reef. Green sea turtles, coral trout, banner fish, clown fish, maori wrasse and parrot fish are just a few inhabitants of the many thousands of species. The green parrot fish in this painting has been named by locals as Gavin and is internationally renowned for smiling and posing with the tourists in their underwater photos.
