Orpheus Island Day Getawayfrom Cairns

Spoil yourself and visit Orpheus, a secluded island lodge located just 30 minutes by helicopter from Townsville.At the Orpheus heliport you will be greeted by the friendly island staff and, following a refreshing fruit cocktail, take your own dinghy or be taken in our custom built drop off boat to your very own secluded beach. Beach comb and indulge in a chef-prepared gourmet picnic hamper, complete with refreshments, in absolute isolation. After lunch, snorkel straight off the beach into pellucid blue-green waters and discover the mystical coral gardens and brightly coloured tropical fish of this underwater world. After a serene three hours, you’ll enjoy another flight over the Palm Island archipelago and return to life as you once knew it!
