With a limit of just 34 guests serviced by attentive but unobtrusive staff, Orpheus is a sophisticated first class retreat for the fortunate few. The resort offers guests a plethora of once in a lifetime experiences, many being romantic experiences just for two.

Orpheus Island is one of only a few private islands in Queensland that can be booked in its entirety for exclusive use as your own private sanctuary! Offering absolute seclusion and serenity, Orpheus provides the perfect backdrop to host an intimate wedding, a corporate retreat, a memorable milestone or a major celebration.

Orpheus Island for Families

There is no better location for a family island holiday than Orpheus.

Orpheus is not your traditional family friendly resort with a kid’s club! Instead, the region presents exceptional reef experiences, a rich indigenous heritage, the opportunity to get close to unique Australian wildlife in their natural habitat, and quality family activities - all of which make a family getaway to Orpheus so memorable.

Families will love snorkelling in the coral reef gardens that fringe Orpheus; discovering the giant clams that laze on a neighbouring seabed; kayaking through the resident mangroves; combing for shells along powdery-white beaches; and hand-feeding mullets on Yanks Jetty.

Children of all ages are welcome on Orpheus; however both the Rooms and Suites are designed to comfortably sleep a maximum of two guests.

Families are best accommodated for in the Villas which sleep four guests. A baby cot, for infants under two years of age, can be set-up in any room type upon request.

Orpheus offers child minding services by arrangement. This service is priced at $35 per hour, per child.
