6 Day All Inclusive Island Retreat

Overview

One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Great Barrier Reef is composed of 2,900 reefs and 900 islands. The beauty of the Great Barrier Reef stretches over 2,300 km and is the only living thing on earth that can be seen from space. The underwater world is home to more than 1,500 fish species, 10% of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Above the water, there are so many wildlife species residing on Orpheus and surrounding islands.

ORPHEUS ISLAND LODGE – Accommodating just 28 people, Orpheus is an all-inclusive, private island lodge located in the Great Barrier Reef.

The island lodge features the main pavilion bar and alfresco-style dining area, a restaurant, a reading room, Gwandalan Day Spa and an inviting 25m x 13m infinity pool that mirrors the Coral Sea.

GREAT BARRIER REEF ECO-TOURS
Sustainability and our impact on the natural environment is an area that we are extremely passionate about and we want to share the beauty of this natural environment and the fragile ecosystem around us. Our Great Barrier Reef eco-tours are designed to educate and demonstrate to guests what makes this such a special part of the world.

RESEARCH STATION TOUR
Located within Pioneer Bay is the Orpheus Island Research Station, a marine research facility operated by James Cook University. On this educational eco-tour, explore the research facilities, including the wet and dry laboratories and the live reef touch tanks. During specific times of the year, internationally renowned Marine Scientists will be conducting integral research on climate change, sea level rise and their potential impacts on the local reef and ecosystems.

PICNIC BAY BEACH CLEAN-UP
We at Orpheus Island Lodge are passionate about preserving and protecting the Great Barrier Reef. Our staff and guests regularly conduct beach clean-ups at Picnic Bay. Marine debris is a major threat to the health of the Great Barrier Reef! Marine debris can smother coral, cause wildlife injury or death through drowning, injury through entanglement and internal injuries, or starvation following ingestion
