Hinchinbrook Island, Queensland, Australia

Hinchinbrook Island is a very large island close to the coast of Queensland. It is in the tropics, and has a wide variety of environments, from crocodile-filled mangrove swamps with 30+ mangrove species on the landward side, through savanna, vine forest, and dunes, to beautiful swimming beaches and freshwater wetlands on the east coast, and rainforest-covered mountains. There is a ca. 35 km walking track, the Thorsborne Trail, aong part of the eastern coast; only about 40 people are permitted to be on the trail at once, and most take 3-5 days to complete it. A truly spectacular place, and one I am lucky to spend time at. Images in this gallery also appear in other galleries on my site, but because Hinchinbrook is so inspiring, I wanted to make it possible to see them all in one place, too.
