HINCHINBROOK ISLAND is Australia's most rugged tropical island. This huge wilderness stretches for 35 kilometres along the north Queensland
coast between the towns of Ingham and Cardwell and soars to heights of over 1100 metres just a short distance inland from its pristine
tropical beaches. This World Heritage Area paradise attracts visitors from around the world who enjoy their stay exploring the myriad
coastal bays or testing their climbing skills on the island's highest peak, Mount Bowen and its spectacular satellite peak, the Thumb.
This DVD shows why Hinchinbrook is one of Australia's most spectacular landscapes.
THREE GREAT PROGRAMS:
A Haven called Hinchinbrook (6:05)

Climb to the Clouds (20:10)
(The 1975 ascent of the Thumb's South East Ridge)
Eleven short documentaries showcase some of Queensland's most stunning bushwalking destinations including the tough All Peaks
Route on Mt Barney. Dialogue is supported by superb photography (as one expects from a Rankin production) and excellent portrayals
of "real people" tackling "real walks". Awesome flumes of water spilling over rainforest-clad escarpments are a reminder of wetter
times in south-east Queensland. Whether you are an ardent bushwalker or an armchair wannabe, you will be inspired by this widescreen
equivalent of the coffee-table book. (Wild Magazine)
The city of Brisbane lies at the centre of an arc of mountain ranges known as the Scenic Rim. No other capital city of Australia has such a diverse range of mountain scenery in such close proximity – from the sub-tropical and temperate rainforests of Lamington, Springbrook and Mount Ballow, to the rocky peaks of Mount Barney and Mount Maroon, and the vast open forests and rainforests of the Great Dividing Range. The people of south-east Queensland are indeed fortunate to have wilderness of this quality almost at their front door.
