Orpheus Island National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Part of the Palm Group of islands located 20km off the coast of north Queensland is Orpheus Island, surrounded by spectacular fringing reefs the park is home to several species of python and plenty of birds making good use of the abundant food supplies in the mangroves and intertidal areas.

The Orpheus Island resort overlooks Hazard Bay, Pioneer Bay is home to the James Cook University Research Station visitors require approval to enter this property. A map of the island is available here. Camping is allowed near Yanks Jetty and Little Pioneer Bay. No fresh water is supplied here. Permits must be obtained before camping. Access to the Island is by private charter only. Beware of marine stingers in the warmer months.

Diving is a popular activity in the area due to the large coral reefs located so close to the island. Most of the water surrounding the island is classified as Marine National Park class B which means look but do not touch or remove any shells or corals. Care when lowering boat anchors should also be exercised due to the fragility of the reefs.

Open fires on island national parks or beaches are not permitted.
