Camping in Orpheus Island

There are three campgrounds on the island—Yanks Jetty, Pioneer Bay and South Beach.

Camping permits are required and fees apply. A camping tag with your booking number must be displayed at your campsite.

Our precious Great Barrier Reef World Heritage islands are among the most pest-free islands in the world. They need your help to stay this way. Please Be pest-free! (PDF, 573.6KB) before your visit.
