Orchid Beach is a secluded residential and holiday destination located on the North East coast of Fraser Island near the ever popular Waddy Point. Orchid Beach is a perfect area for a beach holiday due to the fact that it faces north, this enables the beach to be free from strong winds most of the year. Because this area is 4WD access only, it makes this destination a much sort after oasis, away from the holiday day tourers and buses that frequent the southern section of the island. This area is surrounded by National Parks from the Sandy Cape to Indian Head and is a great place to start your next adventure whether that be bushwalking, 4WD driving or fishing in the great Marloo Bay. Orchid Beach consists of various holiday rentals, a small number of local residents and a local shop called the Orchid Beach Trading Post. The shop will supply all your basic needs including public phone, ATM, fuel, bait and groceries. Alcohol can be purchased from the licensed bar.
World Heritage Fraser Island offers a treasure trove of destinations for you to explore.
The Champagne Pools just north of Indian Head are a beautiful place to spend your day as the tide crashes of the rocks into the safety of the salt water pools creating a bubbling champagne effect. Wathumba Creek to the west of Fraser Island is a great place to try your hand at fishing for mangrove jack, whiting, bream or mud crabs. The 16km Wathumba track takes in various flora and changes in landscape over the course of the journey. You can visit various walking tracks like South Waddy Beach and Sandy Cape Lighthouse or the world famous sand dunes like Binngih Sandblow, Ocean Lake Sandblow, Ngulumubura Blow and the Sandy Cape Dunes.
To begin your next adventure you will need you access Fraser Island via barge. This can be done at either Hervey Bay or if you are traveling from Brisbane you take the barge from Inskip Point via Rainbow Beach. It is recommended you purchase a detailed map of the island and inquire about the condition of the 4WD tracks and beaches before heading over.

The pergola comes equipped with a BBQ, Bar and Pooltable as well as a fridge and chest freezer for the catch of the day. With all the modern comforts and an outdoor entertainment area, no wonder our guests are surprised by this gem as it rises up out of the blue.
