Hinchinbrook Island

Getting Here and Around

Hinchinbrook is a 50-minute ferry ride from mainland marina Port Hinchinbrook, near Cardwell, 190 km (118 mi) south of Cairns and 161 km (100 mi) north of Townsville. Since the island's resort closed, however, scheduled ferries no longer run from Port Hinchinbrook to the island. To charter a ferry from Port Hinchinbrook, you'll need to contact Cardwell Reef and Rainforest Visitor Information Centre in advance. Hikers wishing to trek the island's renowned Thorsborne Trail can take a ferry from Lucinda, farther south.
