Hinchinbrook Adventures is owned and operated by the Liddle family. This 5th generation family has been working the agriculture industry in the region for 35 years and knows every inch and corner of the Hinchinbrook Channel and Girringun National Park.

As young lads Josh Liddle and Nathan Kemp wandered to every square foot of the Hinchinbrook Channel, Herbert River Gorge and Girringun National Park. They now share their secrets with visitors to the region through their adventure company Hinchinbrook Adventures.
