Orchid House at Orchid Beach  -  Fraser Island Accommodation
  Fraser Island accommodation in a self contained rental house at Orchid Beach Queensland in the heart of the National Park and a World Heritage Listed Area.

Within 10 minutes of Indian Head, Champagne Pools, Waddy Point, Ngkala Rocks and Ocean Lake, the House was carefully designed to take advantage of the island's mild sub-tropical climate and to maximise your privacy and comfort. It is fully self contained, beautifully fitted out and the white sandy beach is only 400 metres from your door.

Orchid Beach is on Marloo Bay in the north east of the island and is the peaceful alternative to the busier southern resort settlements of Kingfisher Bay, Eurong and Happy Valley. We don't have a resort hotel, heavy beach traffic, tour buses or day-trippers and the nearby vehicle-free beach between Waddy Point and Champagne Pools is popular with families.

Swimming: Children can swim in the saltwater Champagne Pools, the freshwater Ocean Lake, and the numerous shallow lagoons and low tide gutters along the beach in the sheltered bay, or climb and slide down the many high sand hills.

4WD: A 35 kilometre drive north will take you up the beautiful wilderness area beach to Sandy Cape and around the tip of the island to the historic lighthouse and wartime bunkers.

Please drive carefully and don't disturb the nesting turtles or sea birds.

You are only 30 minutes from the island's western beach at Wathumba Creek and Platypus Bay where whales rest with their calves on their annual migration south. The Wathumba Creek estuary is renowned as a bream spawning ground and for the abundance for flathead, whiting and mud crabs. The Orchid Beach to Wathumba track crosses 16 kilometers of varied landscape containing unique flora such as the Orchid Beach native orchid, palms, ancient cycads, grass trees and beautiful seasonal wildflowers on the wallum heathlands.

When strong winds blow onto the exposed main eastern beach south from Indian Head you can always find a sheltered area to fish or relax near Orchid Beach. The coast from Indian Head past Orchid Beach to Sandy Cape is famous for it's beauty and the variety, number and size of fish caught all year round.

Explore, 4wd, fish and be as active as you want or just put your feet up with a book from our library, your favourite drink and enjoy the sunsets from the beach or veranda.
Get away and experience all the magic of the world's largest sand island.
