Easy track
Starting from the Haven Campsite, Hinchinbrook Island, this walk takes you on a short circuit around the campsite. You can go on a small adventure as you explore the creeks and tributaries in the area while you traverse through a mixed forest of licuala palms along the creek. There are useful facilities at the campsite, including a BBQ and a picnic area with toilets. If the tide is low, you can go and see the remnants of an Aboriginal fish trap at the southern end of the area as well. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
