Orpheus Island Lodge

Resort in Orpheus Island

She ain't cheap, but Orpheus Island Lodge is arguably the finest five-star resort in Queensland, rivalling the more famous Hayman Island for sheer tropical splendour. While not particularly large or opulent, the rooms are magazine-chic and complement the beachfront surrounds. The real draws though are the food, service and prestige, and a Great Barrier Reef location still little visited.
