Orchid House Fraser Island

Sleeps8
Bedrooms 4
Bathrooms2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights

Overview

About the property

The single level high set house is designed for the climate, privacy and your comfort. Each wing of the house has 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate toilet. This allows 2 families or groups to share and still retain their privacy. It is fully self contained and fitted out with commercial crockery, cutlery, glassware and all cooking items.

Location

Orchid Beach is in the peaceful north of Fraser Island. Get away from the resort settlements of Eurong and Happy Valley to relax, fish, 4wd and experience all the magic Fraser has to offer. The house is set on a high private block backing on to National Park bushland.

First time visitors to this very large island who want to "do Fraser in two days" will find the Resorts at Happy Valley, Eurong and Kingfisher Bay busier but more suitable places to stay. We are better suited to a more relaxing 5 night minimum stay. The island is 4WD only, the "roads" are sand tracks, and the eastern beach at or near low tide.

Things to do

Orchid Beach is famous for its variety of scenic and fishing spots. On the western side you can catch mud crabs in Wathumba Creek, pump yabbies on low tide at the mouth and catch Whiting, Bream, and Flathead on the rising tide. Remember sand flies live here also. The North Wathumba track takes you to beautiful Platypus Bay on the western beach where in season you may spot whales. This area features pure white sand and calm beach conditions ideal for children.

The eastern beach of Marloo bay feature the magnificant rocky headlands of Waddy point and Middle rocks with Champagne Pools accessable by boarded walking track. From the high points, turtles, rays, dolphins, sharks and whales may be observed.

Bird watching is a favourite past time on the island with 354 recorded bird species, largest being the spectacular white-bellied sea eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster), frequently observed along the beach. Wallabies and the famous Fraser Island dingos may be frequently observed. Please be aware dingoes are wild animals - closely observe young children.

Four wheel drive and explore the untouched beauty and isolation of Sandy Cape in the Northern part of the Island.

Walk the "vehicle free" beach of South Waddy, swim in Ocean Lake, one of Fraser Islands famous fresh water lakes, or just relax, put your feet up and watch the sunsets from the veranda or beach.

Comfortable, practical and good value

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 8 adults stayed at Orchid House for a week in August 2016, mainly to fish for tailor. The accommodation was comfortable. The kitchen was clean, tidy and practical. We spent most of our time there on the verandah. The down stairs area is useful for storing gear, and cleaning rods and waders. Orchid House is clean, comfortable and practical. It needs a new chest of draws in our bed room, and I would prefer an outside fish filleting table (which it does not have). An enjoyable stay which I would recommend.
