Pelorus Island, located 800 meters north of Orpheus Island, offers great diving opportunities. Being an undeveloped island, it makes a very secluded escape so you can enjoy the wonders of nature first hand. Opportunitues are available to camp in many of the secluded beachfronts, snorkel along the coral fringed coastline or use the island as a base for fishing outside of the Green Zone. Dolphins and whales are commonly seen between mid July to early November with the northern part of the island being a great hotspot to watch them frolic.
Pelorous Island is governed by Hinchinbrook Shire Council and Camping Permits from National Parks is not required. There are no facillities located on the island so if you wish to camp or spend a day, you will need to be self sufficient with all supplies and equipment to be boated in and out again.
