Hinchinbrook Island National Park

Cardwell, Cassowary Coast Area

Delve into the wild paradise of this spectacular World Heritage-listed island. Explore the park by hiking the challenging and world-renowned Thorsborne Trail; fishing the famous Hinchinbrook Channel and Missionary Bay; kayaking from one perfect beach to the next; or by simply enjoying a day visit to one of the many picnic areas and secluded beaches.

The cloud-covered mountain spine of the island is cloaked in fragile heath, and patches of lush rainforest and fragrant eucalypt woodlands descend to mangrove-fringed channels. The coastline is adorned with sweeping bays that meet golden beaches and rocky headlands. Rugged mountain streams and thunderous waterfalls dot the landscape and the waters surrounding the island are rich with colourful fringing reefs and lush seagrass beds.

Camping areas dot island's coastline. Choose from an open grassy area overlooking the channel or a secluded beach-side spot with ocean aspects and uninterrupted sunrise views.
The Aboriginal Traditional Owners of this area lived on Hinchinbrook Island for many thousands of years. Middens and fish traps made of stone are reminders of their long history. Today, the Traditional Owners work with our Park Rangers to take care of this precious place.
