Island and Outback Luxury Hideaways

Experience some of the most breathtaking and unique areas of Australia on this 8 night adventure exploring the Great Barrier Reef and the outback. We’ve chosen September for our tour as it’s possibly the best time to visit far North Queensland with beautiful days and cool stary nights.

We begin with a night in Cairns for logistical purposes before transferring the following day by helicopter to the stunning Orpheus Island Lodge. Orpheus is an all-inclusive, private island lodge located in the Great Barrier Reef and is the ultimate in secluded, unspoilt tropical paradise that stretches across 11km of immaculate turquoise coastline. The island itself, comprising more than 1,000 hectares of national park, is surrounded by pristine fringing reef that you can access simply by stepping out from your accommodation.

Guests have a Signature Experience included each day, among the many curated activities included are snorkelling tours, picnic adventures, sailing on the islands catamaran or taking a pre-dinner sunset cruise to watch the setting sun over this paradise. 

After 3 magical nights we will transfer by helicopter to Mt. Mulligan Lodge where we will spend 4 nights exploring the outback. Located on an entirely private 28,000 hectare outback property 160km north-west of Cairns, Mt Mulligan Lodge accommodates a small number of guests, ensuring a rugged and intimate escape.

Offering all-inclusive luxury accommodation in the shadow of majestic Mount Mulligan, the lodge features a beautifully designed main pavilion for guest meals and relaxation, an infinity pool and sunset bar. Each guest room at Mt Mulligan Lodge is also assigned its own electric buggy for guests to zip to the communal Main Pavilion or the Sunset Bar.

Guests have a Signature Experience included each day with varied activities such as a guided tour of Mt. Mulligan old township, cattle mustering, fishing and walks along the many trails on the property just to name a few.

With space for only 10 guests and a Latitude 33 tour host, we do hope you can join us.
