"I've just spent three amazing nights on @orpheusisland, a luxurious island resort on the fringe of the Great Barrier Reef in North Queensland. Flying in via helicopter, as all guests do, I was greeted with this stunning view of Yanks Jetty; the perfect island welcome. I can't wait to share some more photos from my trip over the next few weeks!"
