Destinations | Queensland

Our Queensland options range from sight casting tidal flats for barramundi to chasing giant black marlin in the deep blue.

The sportfishing on both the east and west coast of Cape York is spectacular. The rivers, creeks and coastal flats deliver excellent barramundi fishing with likely bi-catch including threadfin salmon, mangrove jack, queenfish, blue salmon, golden trevally and a whole lot more.

The jewel in Australia’s crown is the Great Barrier Reef and the incredible sea life it supports. The GBR is a magnet to anglers from around the world looking to tangle with oversized models of their target species. Popping for enormous Giant Trevally; jigging for dogtooth tuna; bait fishing for red emperor and coral trout; chasing speedsters like wahoo and sailfish; and most famously, the marlin fishery where 1,000lbs specimens are tagged every season and juveniles are present year round.
