A mate and myself are going to fish and camp around hinchinbrook in June sometime and ive never been there. Where should two blokes in a troopy campervan and a tinnie stay? On the island or stay on the mainland? What are the tracks like on the island and are there many campsites on the island with boating access?

Also, what are the ferry charges? Ive tried to find this information out myself but there isnt much on the net it seems.

The wife does 7 day hiking trips through Hinchbrook, apparently very peaceful and relaxing (go figure) and there are a few designated camping spots and you have to be self sufficient. There is a ferry service out of Cardwell and one at Lucinda. Cars are not allowed on Hinchinbrook, and there is a limit to the amount of people allowed to stay on the Island.
Hope this helps.

No cars on the island

say at Port Hinchinbrook, there is a pub, bistro, restaurant & a boat motel there as well, were you can leave the tiny at is own wharf & leave from there to do the southern end (more fish at the southern end & go up Cardwell way for the northern part

How big is the tiny? there are a lot of camp site on the eastern side of the island but you are exposed to the sea if it gets rough. you need a sea worthy craft

Zoey falls is well worth the visit you can camp near the creek or up at the falls also there is a creek with a lagoon at the northern end of this bay a lot of Craft go in at high tide & camp, their are some good spots there as well

remember there is probably more crocs on the western side of Hinchinbrook island than any where else in QLD so camp smart
