Hinchinbrook Island, Australia's largest, most pristine island national park, is a landscape spectacle of sandy beaches, precipitous headlands, waterfalls, rugged mountains, mangrove creeks, sheltered bays and dense rainforests.

Cast Away
Imagine walking out of a pristine tropical rainforest onto a magnificent white sand, blue water, ocean swimming beach ....... and finding it totally deserted. Hinchinbrook Island has all the unique qualities you would expect to find on an uninhabited, inaccessible, tropical wilderness paradise, remote from civilisation.

The Thorsborne Trail
The Thorsborne Trail (commonly known as the East Coast trail) is reputedly one of the world's best backpacking adventures. This 32km trail winds its way along the eastern edge of the magnificent island in the shadow of the rugged Mt. Bowen. While the trail presents seasoned walkers with a challenge,inexperienced and the young at heart adventurers, with sufficient planning, will find the experience extremely rewarding.

You can sample the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef with an excursion to the unique Brook Islands. The coral formations around these islands have been identified as being the oldest and largest single formations yet to be found on the Great Barrier Reef. The combination of magnificent coral formations and teeming fish life due to a total ban on all types of fishing on the reef surrounding these islands make it a premier snorkelling location.

Hitchinbrook Island National Park
Hinchinbrook Island National Park has a rich aboriginal history and its adjacent waters are critical sanctuaries for dugongs, turtles and crocodiles. This island is part of both the Wet Tropics and the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Areas. The park is designated wilderness and access is limited. Its rugged skyline is dominated by 1142 metre Mt Bowen which towers over a misty virgin rainforest, dense mangrove-lined shores and spectacular golden sandy ocean beaches.
