Cyclone Ita Update
Posted 14 Apr 2014
Severe Tropical Cyclone Ita, a category 5 system, is approaching the far north Queensland coast and is now expected to make landfall this afternoon between Cape Melville and Cape Tribulation.
For the coastal and island communities from Innisfail to Cardwell, a ‘cyclone watch’ alert remains current. Orpheus sits to the south of this ‘watch’ zone, and although there’s no direct threat to the island, we’ve made the decision to evacuate both guests and staff from the island this morning.
Orpheus is looking forward to re-opening on Tuesday 15th April and welcoming future guests!
