The Wilderness Lodge is now closed from an accommodation point of view, and will reopen June 2010.

The Main Lodge Bar and pool area remains open for day guest visitors on our day tour cruise which we continue to operate from Port Hinchinbrook. Our cruise is one of Queensland’s best!

PERFECT PEACEFUL PRIVATE PARADISE. Far from just a ferry ride, Hinchinbrook Resorts and Cruises offer a spectacular scenic wilderness experience. You can visit just for a day, or stay a night or a week at the mainland waterside location of Port Hinchinbrook Resort and Marina.

Hinchinbrook Island is part of a largely-undisturbed stretch of Queenslands’ coastline, a National Park and World Heritage listings have ensured that the island remains one of the great wilderness areas left on the Australian coast.

The Day Cruise takes you to several unique locations on this magnificent island national park. Throughout the full day tour (9am-5pm) the Skipper and crew make special effort to provide informative commentary about the ecology and history of this very special island.

Two years after the launch of the Daintree Discovery Centre’s Carbon Offset/Bio-sequestration project a cassowary has been spotted doing his ‘bit to assist’ revegetating the denuded block.

Cassowaries assist in seed dispersal by spreading rainforest seeds via their droppings and are known eat the fruit of some 248 different types of rainforest trees. As an accredited Wet Tropics visitor Information Centre, the Daintree Discovery Centre also carries Advanced Eco-Tourism Accreditation.

Green Island a top bush walk!

Already awarded Cleanest Beach in Far North Queensland, Green Island recently received a new honour in being named as one of the top 10 Bushwalks in Queensland by the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM).

This beautiful rainforest-clad island has a circumference of just 1.6 km and is home to over 120 species of plants, including a mixture of coastal and rainforest plants. Of the 300 coral cays in the Great Barrier Reef, Green Island is the only one with a rainforest! With such diversity of plant life and its unique location, it is certainly worthy of this special honour.
 
Visitors can explore the island with Great Adventures self-guided eco walk available in four languages. The island’s lush walking tracks feature a colourful interpretive boardwalk by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service that showcases more of the island’s amazing history, cultural and ecological information. This is also displayed in six languages.

 “It is wonderful that Green Island National Park is recognised as one of the top bushwalks in Queensland,” Quicksilver Group Managing Director Tony Baker said.

“Great Adventures has always been dedicated to showcasing the whole of this unique island from a reef and rainforest perspective and our self guided eco walk highlights the commonly found trees, seeds with interesting facts. Respect for the traditional owners of Green Island (Gungganyji Aboriginal) is also highlighted with indigenous uses of flora being a great point of interest enhancing appreciation of Indigenous culture and history.”

I don’t know too many people that want to go diving with their boss, but at Poseidon Outer Reef Cruises in Port Douglas the crew are always looking for an excuse to take a Sunday off and go out on a play day. Sundays are the day that Poseidon owner Peter Wright heads out on his weekly dives. Why are the crew so keen to go? Well, Pete has a bit of influence, so when he’s on board there is always the possibility of a few exploration dives, drift dives and the chance to visit diving sites less frequented by other divers.

Peter Wright started diving way back in 1958 in Mombasa, inspired by diving legend Hans Hass and was certified in 1988 as a PADI Divemaster. For over 28 years, Pete has owned diving charter vessels in Far North Queensland including the liveaboard 'Scheherazade' from 1981 to 1994, which ran extended dive trips to the Ribbon Reefs and Coral Sea, many of them exploratory. For the last 15 years it has been on the daily Agincourt Reef charter boat “Poseidon” running out of Port Douglas. Pete has built a reputation within the local community of offering reef trips at exceptional standard for visitors to the Great Barrier Reef.

With over 45 different dive sites to choose from, both snorkelers and divers are catered for and for those visitors who just can’t get enough of the Reef - there’s a huge variety of dive sites on offer.

Poseidon is a true family business. Pete’s eldest daughter Shelly is a formidable freediver and regularly joins the diving group above the water for adventure drift snorkelling along the outer reef walls. Shelly’s husband, Neilo is a PADI Instructor and commercial diver and has spent years skippering at the helm of Poseidon.

On some of those early liveaboard trips while on working holidays - Pete’s youngest daughter Katrina learnt to dive as a teenager and now with husband Steve, owns and operates sailing vessels, Sailaway and Shaolin. Both vessels visit the World Heritage Listed ‘Low Isles’ (a coral cay) on daily snorkelling and sailing charters. Diving, snorkelling and sailing are in the blood!

But on July 11th, 2009 the third generation of the Poseidon family earned their stripes. Pete’s grandson David Munro, (Shelly and Neil’s eldest son) at age 13 went through his paces with Poseidon Master Instructor, Heidi Taylor and completed his PADI Junior Open Water certification. David grew up spending many Sundays on the boat with the family, snorkelling and freediving and learning about the Reef.

The day after David achieved his certification happened to be a Sunday - so the first dive of the day saw three generations of the Poseidon family jump in together to do a drift dive at Agincourt Reef.

How many people can say they go diving with their dad and grandpa at some of the best dive locations in the world!
