Welcome to Ingham, Gateway to the Hinchinbrook Region

Just north of Townsville on a road sandwiched between World Heritage listed National Parks, towering cane, rainforest waterfalls and magnificent beaches you will find the Hinchinbrook region.

Meander through ancient rain forests, wetlands teeming with wildlife and river systems that ebb and flow as spectacularly as the seasons.

Climb rugged peaks and refresh in rainforest plunge pools.  Hike or visit waterfalls within World Heritage listed National Parks. Do not miss Wallaman Falls, Australia’s highest permanent single-drop waterfall, plunging 268 metres.  A fresh seafood hamper prepared by Wild Local will certainly enhance your experience and upon your return seek out the Station Hotel in Ingham for an indulgent High Tea or meet in the newly created Pickle Bar.
