Orpheus Island Lodge

Townsville, Townsville Area

Indicative Rate * AU$1500 to AU$2900

Located amidst the magical waters of the Great Barrier Reef, Orpheus is a secluded island hideaway accommodating just 28 indulged guests. Access is either via a 30 minute helicopter journey from Townsville, or a 1.5 hour journey from Cairns.

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.
