This walk is the bucket list for Australian hikers and justifiably so. Its a great 4+ day walk across the east coast of Hinchinbrook Island National Park. We went at the end of the dry season, so the potentially nasty river crossings and endless bogs...More

Hitchenbrook island is beautiful and the hike is well worth it. Excellent walk full of fresh water holes, waterfalls, stunning beaches and lots of varied native trees and shrubs. Recommend Hitchenbrook island cruises for boat transfers.

I'm sure Hinchinbrook Island Cruises or Absolute North Charters could work something out for you but be warned it isn't cheap. Our return (drop of and pick up) was $190 each. They may want more to do it in the same day as... More
