Description

Orpheus Island is located just off the coast of Ingham in northern Queensland and is known for its beautiful fringing reef. The island is only 11 kilometres long and approximately one kilometre wide with the majority of the island composed of a national park.

Just off the coast of Orpheus, you'll find reefs which offer excellent opportunities for snorkelling and scuba diving. You'll also see several large coral bommies in Little Pioneer Bay, Cattle Bay and around the Yank's Jetty area.

There are just a couple accommodation of options on the island: Orpheus Island Resort is a luxury resort that promotes its connection with nature and isolation from the outside world, while the national park has three camping spots.

Orpheus Island is accessible by helicopter from Townsville and Cairns or by launch from Lucinda in the Hinchinbrook Shire.
