Orchid Beach is a small village in the quiet north-east of World Heritage listed Fraser Island. It has fewer visitors than the busy southern end of the Island and is situated on the eastern beach just north of beautiful Waddy Point. Wanyari accommodates up to 8 guests including children. The house was completed early 2007 and has a relaxed, contemporary feel with living over 2 levels. Downstairs are 3 bedrooms 2 with queen beds and one with 4 singles, a bathroom, separate toilet, laundry, large TV / rumpus room and huge deck. Upstairs is open plan with a large, well-appointed kitchen with stainless steel work bench, dining area and leather lounge. The master bedroom is on this level with ensuite and separate toilet. All the windows from this level have spectacular views of the ocean, beach, sand blows, Waddy Point or bush. There is a large deck on this level with a spiral staircase that leads up to our roof-top viewing deck with some of the best ocean views on the Island from Waddy Point to Sandy Cape. Great for whale watching during the humpback migration between July and September, or just for sitting quietly at the end of the day with a drink. The house has been designed to be sensitive to the environment and runs on 24 hour solar power, gas appliances and beautiful Fraser Island water. There is a gas BBQ on the middle deck, a traditional wood BBQ for cooking all those mud crabs and a fish cleaning table on the property. There is plenty of room for parking 4WDs and boats. We provide 2 complimentary kayaks for guest use, Our grounds have many bird attracting native shrubs & manicured lawn. A uniquely beautiful destination where you can be as adventurous or as relaxed as you please.





A refundable $200 security fee applies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Property Fantastic property! We all really enjoyed our stay at Wanyari, Very clean and well presented house in the perfect location with great views to match! This is the place to stay when visiting Fraser island. Very easy to communicate with the owners and they were very helpful with information coming up to our stay. We are already looking to book again for a second time this year

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great House great location! We had a wonderful beach break in this well equipt holiday house. Comfy beds, lots of space to be together as a group and alone to ponder the larger questions in life. Great selection of movies/books for the kids to chill out after a big day on the tracks and plenty of fridge and freezer space. The top deck is wonderful! The professional standard ( even if illegal) Fireworks display that happened at Orchid Beach on new years was a complete highlight!Be aware of the power usage limits (2 x 12V power outlets only - for phone etc available) - all house appliances hard wired, do not cart your 240V coffee machine up with you. I must have missed this in the fine print!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks to the owners of wanyari this house is exactly as described on the web site. It was wonderful to wake up in the morning to see whales leaping out of the water having fun. Also we took 3 elderly ladies there from England who told us this was the best time they had ever had in Australia. We will most definately be booking to stay there again we all had great time. Thanks Trevor and Melissa
