Hinchinbrook Island National Park

Cardwell, Cassowary Coast Area

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. The island's cloud-covered mountains support fragile heaths, and rainforest and eucalypt forests descend to a mangrove-lined channel in the west with bays, beaches and rocky headlands along the east coast. The island lies within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area and its surrounding marine park waters, fringing reefs and seagrass beds are home to some vulnerable species, including dugong and green turtles.

This island park offers isolation and wilderness. Take a short walk from Macushla to Cape Richards, North Shepherd or South Shepherd bays. Enjoy bird watching and experience vibrant wildflower displays in spring. Trek along the remote east coast Thorsborne Trail for four to seven days or explore the island's coastline by sea kayak, bush camping along the way. Book early to avoid disappointment.
