Uncover a secluded Great Barrier Reef Island that offers immaculate coastlines and a tranquil tropical escape at Orpheus Island. Located just off the coast of Ingham in North Queensland, Orpheus Island is renowned for its exclusivity, beauty and spectacular fringing reefs. The majority of the Island is comprised of pristine National Park set amongst the turquoise waters of the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef.

With limited accommodation options and access via helicopter or private charter, Orpheus Island provides a true escapism for visitors. Stay at Orpheus Island Resort for pure luxury. Arrive by helicopter and be transported to a tropical indulgence complete with gourmet dining in some of the most spectacular settings imaginable. Relax in comfort or let the staff arrange a full day of activities for you to explore the Island further. For a more low-key accommodation option, the National Park has three camping spots.

Ideally located on the Great Barrier Reef, Orpheus Island is a magical location for fishing, snorkelling and diving with the dive sites showcasing 1100 of the 1500 species of fish on the reef.

Orpheus showcases a plethora of once in a lifetime experiences! Its principal dive sites boast 1,100 of the 1,500 species of fish on the reef; the local waters are a fisherman’s playground and home to the most sought after reef fish species in the world; and guests can take the helm of a motorised dingy complete with gourmet picnic hamper and discover the many pristine coves and reefs that fringe Orpheus. 

Alternatively, Orpheus provides the perfect backdrop for a more private interlude if guests wish to simply relax and succumb to a unique indigenous-inspired treatment at the Gwandalan Day Spa. Accommodation rates include all gourmet meals, celebrating a bounty of locally-sourced and freshly grown and caught seasonal delights, a selection of Australian wines and beers, and a daily Orpheus experience (snorkelling, fishing, island cruises). Not to be missed is the signature Dining with the Tides experience, an intimate dinner for two under a starlit canopy on the island’s jetty.

Navair provides a short 30 minute helicopter journey from Townsville or 1.5 hours via Cairns. Call us today to discuss your Orpheus Island adventure.
