Orpheus , Orpheus Island QLD 4810
Located amidst the magical waters of the Great Barrier Reef, Orpheus is a secluded hideaway accommodating just 28 indulged guests. Accessed by helicopter transfer, the island's location ensures absolute seclusion and serenity. Showcasing a plethora of once-in-a-lifetime experiences, Orpheus' dive sites are a diverse marine wonderland; the local waters are a fisherman's playground; and guests can take the helm of a motorised dinghy and discover the many private beaches that fringe Orpheus. Not to be missed is the signature Dining with the Tides experience, an intimate degustation dinner under a starlit canopy on the island's jetty.
