About Horn Island
Given Horn Island’s proximity to Australia’s mainland as well as its inclusion in the Torres Strait, Horn Island offers a uniquely dualistic island experience. Nestled against the Cape York Peninsula, between Australia and southern Papua New Guinea, Horn Island is ideal for those who wish to experience the off-the-grid charm of the outer islands while also enjoying the convenience of modern amenities.
