Description

The Thorsborne Trail is a 32 kilometre walking trail within Hinchinbrook Island National Park. Hinchinbrook Island is a rugged, outstanding feature of the north Queensland coast between Townsville and Cairns. Its cloud-covered mountains, reaching 1,000 metres, support fragile heath vegetation. Patches of lush rainforest and extensive eucalypt forest descend to a mangrove-fringed channel in the west with sweeping bays and rocky headlands along the east coast. The island is within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

The Thorsborne Trail is not a graded or hardened walking track and, in some areas, is rough and difficult to traverse. It should only be undertaken by fit, experienced and well-prepared walkers who are fully self-sufficient. The trail is managed under the minimal impact bushwalking and no-trace camping ethics. To help minimise impact and to maintain the wilderness setting, permits are issued for a maximum of 40 people on the trail at any one time. The largest group size is six. Before setting out, all walkers should obtain a copy of the QPWS Thorsborne Trail trail guide.

Leave hiking details with a responsible contact person. This will assist in the event of an emergency situation or when hikers are overdue. We recommend that hikers plan to spend four days traversing this difficult trail.
