Absolute North Charters is a small but adventurous Tourism business in Lucinda, North Queensland, Australia...

Its aim is to get people off the well worn track that is North Queensland tourism to a place of rare and tranquil beauty.

Day trips and Camping trips available.

We also aim to be a voice for this amazing Island as it has always been in the sights of mindless capitalist ideals...

So far so good.

With respect to numbers of visitors allowed we intend to strive to lift the numbers

that have declined over the last ten years, but only through activities of low impact.

We think that if the numbers of people enjoying the Island in its natural state is higher we will have more of a case to argue against the capitalist greed that has ruined many islands along our coast, including fringing reefs through lack of management of dollar driven activities... The capitalist ideals demand that if money is not the driving force for something to exist, then it has no place at any other level, including spiritual...

We understand how lucky we are to be allowed this privelige to be able to work in this environment we have and we intend to protect this place beyond unrealistic financial gain to ourselves at the expense of environment, lifestyle or any living entity that calls this place home.

  • John is super friendly and very informative about the trail. He told us where we'd find reception on the island as well which helped with communicating with him. Gave us recommendations regarding tide timings and weather and also was very accommodative to some changes from the initial plan. Would highly recommend his service to anyone!
  • Had an amazing time on the Thorsborne trail made easier thanks to John. John was incredibly hospitable and informative about the trail and surrounding area. He gave extra info regarding where to find water as it was the dry season. Aside from the trail he was super friendly, genuine and went the extra mile to help us.
