This Package allows you to start your walk at Cardwell, be transferred to the Northern End at Ramsay Bay, trek to the Southern End to George Point and then be transferred to the Southern End at Lucinda. It is then your responsibility to organise your own transfer from Lucinda.
Of course, you also have the choice to reverse this and start at Lucinda, transfer to George Point, do your trek to the Northern End at Ramsay Bay then transfer to Cardwell.
This Package is especially popular with those who travel by bus or train and want to continue their travels north (towards Cairns and Port Douglas) or south (towards Townsville and Airlie Beach) after completing the Thorsborne Trail.
