When people think about an escape to Queensland, most people picture themselves enjoying the luxury of a resort and lounging about poolside or on white sandy beaches. All of this is very, very lovely, but what if you could have those white sandy beaches on a remote island, and still have a once in a lifetime adventure?
Hinchinbrook Island is located on Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef, just 8 kilometres off the mainland. It’s the largest island on the reef, and the whole island is a preserved national park.
The famous Thorsborne Trail winds around the east coast of the island. Under the shadow of the rugged Mt Bowen you will walk through rainforests, crossover clear mountain streams, relax by waterfalls, and walk along pristine white beaches next to a vibrant blue ocean. You won’t find another trail like this one anywhere in Australia, or even the world.
Hinchinbrook Island is a beloved icon of Queensland’s National Parks, and there are a very limited number of people allowed on the trail at one time. Not only does this ensure that the Island will remain preserved, and stunningly beautiful for future generations, it also means that you can truly feel a part of nature, and escape busy city lives while on this adventure.
There are only 6 spots available on this trip, if you have been looking for a new experience to truly challenge yourself, then this is it.
