Creating Cardwell & Hinchinbrook Tours

Andrew and Amanda Payne started Hinchinbrook Hiking Gear in January 2016 and have since expanded in tourism. They now offer a variety of land based day tours and camping tours. They also hire out hiking equipment for the Thorsborne Trail and for the Island campers.

Early in 2016 both companies started a close working relationship. This continued and expanded into 2017 and in March we opened a tour and information centre located on the main street of Cardwell where we will provide both local’s and visitors with a 1-Stop shop where they can book accommodation and tours for the Tropical Coast from Townsville to Cooktown.

“We want to create an ‘Information Hub’ where tourists can find out what Cardwell has to offer. Cardwell is a hidden gem with many natural wonders just waiting to be explored. We want to make this accessible for all our tourists” says Amanda Payne.
