What you can expect

The most comprehensive scenic flight experience in the region, combining all the incredible highlights of our 60 minute Palm Island Group Scenic Flight plus a circuit of Australia’s largest Island National Park, Hinchinbrook Island.

Visible from afar, the islands mountainous backbone has weathered into spectacular jagged peaks, reaching 1142m (3746ft) at their highest point, being the often mist-covered summit of Mount Bowen.

From here, seasonal creeks descend into stunning waterfalls (Mulligan and Zoe Falls) or in other areas through the islands rainforest and open woodland forming abundant estuaries flowing out to sea.

The views around Hinchinbrook are spectacularly punctuated by abrupt headlands giving way to countless secluded coves and pristine sandy beaches which stretch along much of the islands eastern shoreline.

The extensive Mangrove habitat at Mission Bay, on the northern end of the island, plus that which lines the lush Hinchinbrook Channel on the west, combine to form one of the largest and most ecologically significant mangrove areas on the Australian continent.

In addition to the immense natural beauty of Hinchinbrook you may be able to spot the remains of an American B-42 Liberator Bomber known as the Texas-Terror which crashed at the islands most southern point during a violent storm back in December, 1942. A total of 5 shipwrecks also surround the island, and if the tides are right, the remains of the brigantine Belle, lost here 130 years ago, can be seen resting in Ramsey Bay.
