This alert applies to the following parks:

Hiking the Thorsborne Trial is considerably challenging during the summer months between October to March. QPWS strongly recommends careful consideration of choosing to undertake the Thorsborne Trail hike during this time.

Conditions are extremely hot and humid during the summer months on Hinchinbrook Island which increases the risk of heat related injuries. Water sources often dry up in the lead up to the wet season. When the wet season starts, high rainfall results in rapidly rising creeks making crossing dangerous. Extreme weather events are also more likely to occur during the wet season.
