Hiking the Thorsborne Trail
The 32-kilometre Thorsborne Trail is a classic tropical bushwalk that weaves along the east coast of the 393-square-kilometre Hinchinbrook Island National Park. There is a maximum of 40 people allowed on the track at a time, and the campsites are restricted to six people. You will walk along coral-strewn beaches fringed by lime rainforest and coconut palms, see sea-turtles and sweat profusely as you hike up steep hills in the humid conditions. Although the distances are not long, the EPA recommends a minimum of three nights and four days. The northern end of the track is Ramsay Bay, serviced by the ferry at Hinchinbrook Island Wilderness Lodge and Resort. The ferry does not run from mid- January to Easter. For ferries to and from the southern end, contact Hinchinbrook Wilderness Safaris. For mainland buses between Lucinda and Port Hinchinbrook, contact Ingham Travel.
