Hinchinbrook Island

As you first look upon Hinchinbrook Island you are captivated by a stunning blue ocean, fringing reef life and white flat sandy beaches. The appearance of rugged, unforgiving mountain landscape that protrude through the clouds, leaves you overwhelmed. The island is covered in paperbark, wetlands and extensive woodland. Damp rainforest and eucalypt trees descend to various channels that are surrounded by lush mangroves, making it a great home and breeding ground for a large array of animal life. Trails and hiking are the most sought after things to do on Hinchinbrook Island.
