Hinchinbrook Island – a sacred wildness

Hinchinbrook Island – a sacred wildness

Steven Nowakowski spent 10 years documenting and capturing the essence of the Hinchinbrook Island’s wild landscapes. His time spent exploring this elusive and magnificent island has enabled him to compile an exquisite collection of images for his book Hinchinbrook Island – a sacred wildness.


The book includes 75 large format panoramic images depicting the grandeur of the Islands landscapes and is gracefully accompanied by poetry written by Liz Downes.


The inspiration for the book came from the Oyster Point Environmental Campaign, which was aimed at halting the massive marina and residential subdivision adjacent to the Hinchinbrook Channel. The campaign ran for over a decade. Throughout the campaign, around 30 people were arrested—Steven was one of them. Protestors managed to shut down the dredge that was attempting to cut a boating channel through seagrass beds (vital for Dugong survival) in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.


Due to the relatively unknown status of Hinchinbrook and its beauty, Steven has delicately and respectfully displayed the splendid scenery of the island. His objective is to enable people to fully understand what is truly at stake. Through printing such images, Steven strongly believes it can play a vital role in helping conserve what is left of our natural wilderness areas – we must continue to show Australians what can be lost through misguided decisions.


Hinchinbrook Island - a sacred wildness also includes a brief cultural history, a narrative of the Oyster Point Environmental Campaign and a foreword by Hinchinbrook's ambassador Margaret Thorsborne.
