Hinchinbrook is one of Australia's most impressive and rugged continental islands. Hinchinbrook Channel, which separates the island from the mainland, is renowned for its variety of mangroves and dugong populations. Hinchinbrook Island National Park offers isolation and wilderness experiences - the challenging Thorsborne Trail is one of the world's most popular wilderness walks. Take a short walk from Macushla to Cape Richards, North Shepherd or South Shepherd bays. Trek along the remote east coast Thorsborne Trial for four to seven days or explore the island's coastline by sea kayak, bush camping along the way. Book early to avoid disappointment.
Children are welcome.
