Discover a palm-fringed paradise situated in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. We’ll help you discover an island escape your soul is craving for, just off the coast of Townsville, North Queensland, where the phrase ‘Island Time’ means reconnecting with nature and maybe even a little adventure.
The journey to Orpheus Island is all part of the experience. Embark on a 1hr 45 min scenic cruise as you pass through, and learn about, the Palm Island Group. Keep an eye out for the majestic Humpback Whales (mid-July – August) and enjoy a delicious morning tea and lunch. You’ll have plenty of time to stroll the beach and explore the surrounds, relax by the jetty or take a dip in the clear blue waters.
Once you arrive
>The day is yours (approx. 3-hours) to laze on the beach or jetty, cool off and explore spectacular fringing reefs or take part in some beach fun –BYO beach toys.
>A snorkelling area is defined for your safety & ease of underwater exploration with access from the jetty or beach. Our snorkel crew will provide snorkelling instructions and set you on your way to find some hidden gems beneath the surface.
> Yanks Jetty is surrounded by National Park, therefore, there are no facilities on the island. The SeaLink vessel remains alongside the jetty and is accessible throughout the day for use of the toilets and purchase of light snacks & refreshments (all liquor must be purchased and consumed on-board). Undercover seating is also available on the jetty.
