An exlusive island
for your exotic vacation
Located amidst the magical waters of the Great Barrier Reef, Orpheus is
nestled in a sheltered bay of a National Park Island. Positioned 80 kilometres north of Townsville and 190
kilometres south of Cairns, Orpheus is fringed by some of Queensland’s most spectacular
From the moment you board your 30 minute scenic flight transfer over the emerald islands which stud the Coral Sea
below; you will begin to feel the burdens of modern life slip away.
Catering for the
discerning traveller, Orpheus is a magical tropical isle without the unnecessary formalities. The island
atmosphere is relaxed and unspoilt, one we feel best suits a tropical island. Accommodating just forty
indulged guests at any one time ensures serenity and seclusion reign.
There are no forced activities on Orpheus, however there is plenty
for you to do! Orpheus’ principal dive and snorkel sites are home to 1,100 of the 1,500 species of fish on the
reef, 340 of the 359 varieties of hard corals and one of the region’s largest collections of soft corals. The
reef is also a fisherman’s playground as the local waters surrounding Orpheus provide some of the most sought
after reef and game fish species in the world.
You can also take the helm of your very own motorised dinghy
and discover the secluded and unspoilt coves within the local waters surrounding the Lodge.
Walk straight off the powder white sand into pellucid
blue-green waters, bask in the warm sunshine and enjoy a delicious pre-prepared gourmet picnic hamper on your own
private beach. Alternatively, you can opt to do nothing at all – one certainty is that on Orpheus, you will find
the perfect sanctuary.
Celebrating a bounty of local, in-season and wholesome
ingredients, our Resident Chef prepares a daily changing menu that showcases the riches of the region and
dishes which stimulate both the mind and palate. Special dietary requirements are also catered
