"Highlight of our trip...!"

This adventure was the highlight of our trip. John went above and beyond in his service and personal dedication to ensuring we had an amazing time. He is a wealth of knowledge about the area and also very passionate about wildlife. We loved our time with him and were blown away by the beauty of the island. Couldn’t recommend Absolute north charters highly enough. Great local experience. Thanks for an incredible time. thumb_01_90_90 Matt and Steph

Hiking at Hinchinbrook!

"We shall return..."

John, We just want to say a big thank to you and your staff. The information you provided before our trip to Hinchinbrook Island was ‘spot on’. The weather was extreme with 600 mm of rain which fell nearby in the previous 24 hours. Nevertheless we packed accordingly and took off on the Thorsborne Trail. It was not long into the trail we saw the mighty waterfalls which we would need to pass. That evening we made camp and cooked in the rain. The following morning after the night skies provided the Island with another couple of hundred millimeters of rain we were still keen and excited to hike for the day and started to pack up camp. It was with suprise we saw you and Matt walking through the rain and into our very damp campsite (a distance of a few kilometers from the waters edge) to view the waterfalls first hand. From our first conversation you were worried whether the waterfalls were passable after so much recent rain. After assessing the falls you advised us that because the amount of water coming down mountain; the trail was not passable and if we attempted to proceed it would be very danagerous if not unwise. We listened to your advice. We did not continue the walk because of the bad weather, the saftey risks involved and the concerns raised. We graciously accepted your offer of a boat ride back to Lucinda. We thank you for your knowledge and insight into the Island and your dedication to your clients when walking the Thorsborne Trail. We shall return to continue our adventure…in better weather… thumb_01_90_90 The Wildes
