Located amidst the magical waters of the Great Barrier Reef, Orpheus is nestled in a sheltered bay of a National Park Island. Positioned 80 kilometres north of Townsville and 190 kilometres south of Cairns, Orpheus sits in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef and is fringed by some of Queensland's most spectacular coral.
From the moment you board your 30 minute scenic flight transfer over the emerald islands which stud the Coral Sea below; you will begin to feel the burdens of modern life slip away.
