With luxe accommodation, an over-water pavilion, restaurant, infinity pool, and a wealth of fun pursuits, this is the perfect place for your island holiday.

A true paradise for romance and relaxation, Orpheus Island provides an array of enjoyable activities, day and night. Swim among the colourful residents of the Great Barrier Reef on a personalised snorkelling or diving tour. Get into your own motorised dinghy and explore the magnificent bays fringing the island. After, reserve an intimate dinner on the pier as you watch the setting sun over the horizon. Or you can always succumb to the bliss of a pampering massage at the Gwandalan Day Spa.
