Orpheus Island is set among the sparkling waters of the Great Barrier Reef and encompasses 11km of pristine coastline and 1,368 hectares of national park. The lodge is nestled within the sheltered Hazard Bay, putting you in the perfect position from which to experience the bounties of this great natural wilderness.
The 17 rooms at Orpheus Island are clean, crisp and contemporary. Natural colours, blond timber and large windows create bright and laid-back spaces, complemented by the extraordinary setting outside. They are the ideal place to which to retire and gaze upon gorgeous beachfront views after a day spent exploring. For families or groups of friends, the four-bedroom beachfront villa is perfect.
Dine at the lodge’s restaurant, which uses freshly caught and locally grown ingredients to create dishes that reflect the island’s tropical environment. Select from some of Australia’s finest vintages to accompany your food. For something truly unique, the Dining with the Tides experience allows guests to enjoy a private dinner on the pier served under the starry night sky.
The Aboriginal name for Orpheus is Goolboddi and the island’s original inhabitants were the Manbarra people. In consultation with the elders of the region, the lodge’s spa was named Gwandalan which means ‘rest and peace’ in the Aboriginal language. Relax, rejuvenate and forget your troubles, with treatments that use Australian native ingredients and traditional therapies.
