A small party of us will be doing the Thorsborne Trail from south ( George Point ) to north (Ramsay Bay) in late September. The Trail is on Hinchinbrook Island, which is midway between Cairns and Townsville, in Far North Queensland (FNQ to the locals).
This blurb, taken from the official site ,describes Hinchinbrook Island in glowing terms:
The route we are planning is opposite to the one normally taken. This was taken on the advice of a local walker, who suggests this is the nicest direction to do the walk. There is also a significant benefit that part the final day is spent at the Hinchinbrook Island Wilderness Resort .
It is a bit of a logistic nightmare to organise getting too and from the Island. We have a long , early morning, drive from Cairns to Cardwell then a bus transfer to Lucinda to take a ferry with Hinchinbrook Wilderness Safaris to the Island. This trip is tide dependant and luckily a 10am start works that day so we should be walking easily by lunchtime.
The return trip is with Hinchinbrook Ferries . They have some good information on their website including a suggested itinery for a 4 day walk. I also found this site which is part of a blog about a Dutch person’s travels around Australia. She describes the walk nicely .
