Orpheus Island Tours

Imagine an island risen up in the midst of the Great Barrier Reef, surrounded by turquoise waters and tropical coast. Orpheus Island is a private island situated between Townsville and Cairns that is exactly that — 1,300 hectares of isolated and protected land and national park. At just 1 kilometer wide and 11 kilometers long, the unspoiled island is the perfect base to explore the underwater wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. There are dozens of trails and scenic lookouts perched amongst the hills of Eucalyptus trees. 

Due to the seclusion of the island and a limited number of guests, Orpheus Island has become known for its privacy and luxury. Its beaches and bays are fringed by one of the largest reefs in the world, complete with its colorful coral and nearly 1,100 species of fish. There are also indigenous Aboriginal sites and shipwrecks to explore in the warm waters surrounding the island.

Practical Info

Orpheus Island lies of the north Queensland coast of Australia, accessible only by helicopter, private charter or boat.
