Orpheus Island Resort Activities 

Set against a backdrop of natural beauty along 11km of pristine coastline, this secluded resort is the ultimate five-star island getaway, offering a multitude of ways to explore the World Heritage-listed waters of the Great Barrier Reef. From fishing, to beachcombing fringing bays aboard a motorised dinghy, or joining an exploratory cruise gliding above coral gardens while sipping on Australian wine – your stay at Orpheus Island Lodge can be as adventurous or relaxing as you wish.

And there are plenty of snorkel and dive sites waiting to be explored, with Orpheus principal dive sites boasting 1,100 of the 1,500 species of fish on the reef. Venture to nearby locations or further out to the deeper reefs, accessible via a 75-minute boat ride.

Why not time your stay during manta ray season, between July to November; or Humpback whale migration, from late June to late September?  If you’d prefer to spend a day or two of your stay easing into island time, indulge in a pampering at Gwandalan Day Spa, hideaway with a novel in the reading room, or while away the hours by the infinity pool, looking out to the Coral Sea.
