Introducing Cardwell & Around

Most of the Bruce Highway runs several kilometres inland from the coast, so it comes as something of a shock to see the sea lapping right next to the road as you pull into the small town of Cardwell – the closest access point to Hinchinbrook Island. Poor Cardwell took a beating from Cyclone Yasi, with many of the town’s older homes smashed and the new marina switched to spin cycle.
