Things To Do Around Orchid Beach:
Orchid Beach is located in beautiful sheltered Marloo Bay, north Fraser Island. Due to its remote location, and there being no resort hotel in the area, it is out of range of heavy beach traffic, tour buses and day-trippers. There is a vehicle free beach between Waddy Point and Champagne Pools which is very popular for families.
Eliza Palms is a five minute walk to beautiful beaches and is in the vicinity of Indian Head, Champagne Pools, Waddy Point, Ngkala Rocks and Ocean Lake.
Fishing:
Fish for bream, whiting and flathead all year round, and tailor when in season.
Swimming:
Waddy Point has many shallow lagoons that are ideal for swimming
Whale Watching:
Orchid Beach is a great place to whale watch in the winter months. Whales can often be seen breaching close to Waddy Point.

Eli Creek
Cool off next to this crystal clear freshwater creek that flows through vegetated banks and out to the beach. Watch for eels and frogs from the boardwalk, and see small fish swimming against the current.

Kingfisher Bay
Sheltered coastline, impressive views across the Great Sandy Strait and historical sites are all within easy walking distance of Kingfisher Bay.

Lake Wabby
