Australia's Best Coastal Walking Trail 

Hinchinbrook Island’s rugged Thorsborne Trail is one of the World’s best multi-day walking experiences. The trail traverses an incredible diversity of terrain, from rugged tropical peaks, stunning coastal beaches, rocky shorelines, melaleuca swamps and patches of eucalypts and rainforest. As the trail winds its way 32km south from Ramsay Beach to George Point it intersects many of the islands iconic destinations including Nina Peak, Zoe Bay and Mulligan Falls.

For the ultimate experience walk the trail from north to south and book your boat transfers to and from Lucinda. This option delivers a stunning early morning one hour cruise of the incredibly photogenic Hinchinbrook Channel enroute to Ramsay Bay. The beauty of this option is once you have finished the trail it is only a 15 minute transfer from George Point back to your transport, hot showers, hot meals and a cold brew!
