Orpheus Island offers two accommodation options - the luxurious Orpheus Island Resort and three camping spots within the National Park for a more low-key experience.

Orpheus Island offers a range of activities including snorkelling, diving, fishing, kayaking, island cruises, and guided nature walks. The resort can also arrange for activities such as picnics on secluded beaches, wildlife spotting, and stargazing.

While Orpheus Island Resort caters primarily to couples and honeymooners, families can still enjoy the island's natural beauty and activities. The resort may have specific policies regarding children, so it's essential to check with them before booking.

The island enjoys a tropical climate year-round, with warm temperatures and sunny days. The dry season (May to October) is considered the best time to visit due to lower rainfall and humidity. However, the island can be visited and enjoyed at any time of the year.

Orpheus Island Resort offers gourmet dining experiences for its guests, including beachside picnics, degustation dinners, and themed dining events. There are no other restaurants on the island, so campers should bring their own supplies.

Orpheus Island Resort provides Wi-Fi for its guests. Mobile reception may be limited or unavailable on the island, depending on your carrier and location.

While the island is generally safe, visitors should be aware of potential hazards such as marine stingers during the summer months (November to March). It is recommended to wear stinger suits when entering the water during this time. Additionally, always follow safety guidelines and precautions provided by the resort and National Park authorities.
