Starting from South Macushla Campsite, Hinchinbrook Island, this walk takes you to Cape Richards and back. The area hosts orange-footed scrub fowls and different rainforest pigeons, which makes it suitable for birdwatching enthusiasts. Additionally, you can enjoy the tranquillity as you step on the track and see the open beach views. After you have a peaceful walk along the coastline, arrive at Cape Richards and enjoy the pristine beach, where it is possible to fish, swim and surf with calm tides. You might want to take plenty of water as there is not a lot of shade along the track. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
