Orpheus Island National Park

Unwind on a tropical island

Charter a boat—or take your own—to unwind on Orpheus Island National Park in the Palm group of islands, within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. Book into the luxury resort or set up a self-sufficient camp in one of the island’s secluded camping areas. Snorkel off the beach in blue-green reef waters to discover a marine wonderland. Look and listen for birds in the forest and on the shore and visit the reef research station and clam nursery in Pioneer Bay. This a true ‘tropical island’ experience!
