In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in line with our Governments advice on “social distancing” and “non essential services”, Hinchinbrook Island Cruises is taking proactive and responsible steps to reduce potential risks to our staff, customers and people in the community.
As a result, Hinchinbrook Island Cruises will suspend transferring hikers to the Thorsborne Trail on Hinchinbrook Island and our Day Trips and Island Cruises are also suspended.
These measures are effective as of 23rd March 2020 and will be reviewed on a month to month basis in line with the current Government advice and recommendations.



We transfer hikers to the famous THORSBORNE TRAIL on Hinchinbrook Island, offer DAY TRIPS and PRIVATE CHARTERS.

“If you haven’t been to Hinchinbrook Island it should be on your bucket list”.

Discover the world renowned Hinchinbrook Island, one of Australia’s largest island National Parks with mountainous scenery, mysterious wetlands and pristine beaches. Discover the wildlife of North Queensland including birds, crocodiles, dolphins, turtles, dugongs, manta rays and humpback whales.

We recommend staying in Cardwell, the only town on the Highway between Townsville and Cairns located on the coast. Cardwell has spectacular views of Hinchinbrook Island and can also be accessed by train or bus.

The town has a supermarket, a great selection of accommodation, cafes, pubs, museums, art gallery, speciality shops and many other local attractions.
If you don’t have your own transport we can transfer you to and from your accommodation for your hike or day trip.

TRIPADVISOR – August 2019
The business has recently been taken over by Brad White – an ex Park Ranger who really knew his stuff. He had worked on building the original pontoon at Hinchinbrook plus later reparation work in the local area after Cyclone Larry. Brad arrived on time and was very professional and knowledgeable about the island. The boat was fast and immaculately clean – good OH&S including providing a Personal Locater Beacon in case of emergency on the island. We were dropped off for 6 hours and had a great time walking and enjoying the wild beauty of the Island – we took our own food and water etc. we were lucky that it was also a spectacular day weather wise!
Can very much recommend this trip – good service and good value for money. Felt that we were safe and well prepared for the trip thanks to Brad s advice etc.
