Leave Real Life Behind at Orpheus Island Off the Coast of Australia
The Great Barrier Reef is a destination with a certain aura of magic about it, and at Orpheus Island the magic is never more than a few steps away.
Surrounded by the magical waters of the Great Barrier Reef, Orpheus is a secluded island stretching across seven miles of immaculate turquoise coastline and comprising nearly 3,400 acres of pristine national park and surrounding world heritage-listed marine park. Along a tranquil beach on Hazard's Bay, the lodge and guestrooms peek out from beneath towering palms. Private terraces and bright, natural colors blend the gorgeous outdoors with the sumptuous interiors.
The island boasts more beaches than guests, and you'll be busy exploring the endless coves and deserted shores. As with all our base camps, each moment on Orpheus Island is cultivated especially for you to create your most cherished memories of Australia.
Exquisite guestrooms never more than a stone's throw from the water's edge with stunning views of either lush tropics or the serene Coral Sea
