Hinchinbrook Island is Australia's largest National Park island. It is uninhabited except for the award-winning, environmentally friendly Hinchinbrook Island Wilderness Lodge at Cape Richards. The Island abounds in flora, fauna, palm-fringed beaches, mangrove waterways and rugged granite crags.
It is a short ride via ferry or private charter to Hinchinbrook Island. The long sandy beaches and extensive mangrove areas make Hinchinbrook Island an environmental haven for turtles, dugongs and many other marine creatures.
Hinchinbrook is a bushwalker's paradise. Located on the eastern seaboard of the island is the famous Thorsborne trail - a 32 kilometre wilderness walking trek, possibly one of the seven great walks of the world. Trail numbers are limited and camping grounds are provided in designated areas. You'll see rainforests of Milky Pine, Palm Figs, and vines, with more than 66 species of birds, 22 species of butterflies, 29 different mangroves and many varieties of fish and crustaceans.
Hinchinbrook Island Wilderness Lodge is the only accommodation on the island. The lodge blends into the spectacular natural surroundings and provides civilised benefits and comforts to give you the opportunity to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere with easy access to beautiful rainforests.
Hinchinbrook is the perfect place to restore body, mind and spirit. This is the Island to choose if you want peace, beauty and tranquillity. Ferry connections depart from Lucinda or Cardwell.... less
