Orpheus Island
Great Barrier Reef, Australia/Pacific

Located amidst the magical waters of the Great Barrier Reef, Orpheus is nestled in a sheltered bay of a National Park Island. Orpheus is a secluded island hideaway accommodating just 28 indulged guests. Positioned 80 kilometres north of Townsville and 190 kilometres south of Cairns, Orpheus sits in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef and is fringed by some of Queensland’s most spectacular coral.


All 14 rooms are on the beach front and feature en suite bathrooms. They are fully air-conditioned with ceiling fans, private patio and a personal spa.


Best suited to the island’s tropical environment, Orpheus offers a light, contemporary and daily-changing menu that showcases the riches of the region through fusion cuisine.

Orpheus’s culinary team is more than happy to accommodate any dietary requirements; as a remote destination it’s important that you advise of any requirements prior to check-in so they can source any appropriate ingredients.
