Orpheus Island Resort hotels
One of the most exciting reasons for staying at hotels in Orpheus is the close proximity of the Great Barrier Reef. This is the largest reef system and home to hundreds of species of fish, coral, and birds. This makes it a popular holiday destination for nature and water sports lovers from all around the world.
You will find most accommodation in Orpheus is close to a variety of fun and interesting activities. Naturally, one of the most favourite is diving and snorkelling into the beautiful azure waters of the Coral Sea located off the Queensland Coast. Here you don’t just observe the variety of sea life, you experience it!
Some guests may prefer staying out of the water and spending their time fishing instead. This area boasts a large number of popular fish such as coral trout, black marlin, tuna and wahoo. Chartering a boat is a great way to spend the day fishing and then feasting on the day’s catch for dinner.
The island is also the location of the Orpheus Island Research Station, where you can take a tour and learn about the reef and the area surrounding it. Visitors can also experience the sensation of touching a coral reef at the station’s live reef touch tanks.
Choosing Orpheus hotels can make for a luxurious holiday. Using our hotel loyalty program helps you spoil yourself even further, since member rewards at HotelClub guaranties up to 7% back on your bookings to be used anywhere, anytime.
To get to your Orpheus Island accommodation, fly into the Townsville International Airport. From Townsville you can take a helicopter, seaplane, ferry or private boat to the island.
