Known as the whale watching capital of the world, Hervey Bay located 360km north of Brisbane is also the birthplace of saltwater flats fishing in Australia, next to Fraser Island and the Great Sandy Straits Marine Park.
Home to Golden Trevally, Long Tail Tuna, Snapper and more, the region also attracts juvenile Black Marlin in the Spring which can be targeted in the shallows on fly. Majestic Humpback whales frequent the waters here from July to November, where you can also find dolphins, dugongs, turtles and other wildlife such as the Fraser Island Dingo.
Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world, which has created a perfect habitat for flats species combined with the tropical waters from the north and temperate waters from the south which converge here.
In addition to fully-guided fly fishing packages, Fly Odyssey can also help you plan a fun-filled family holiday to the region.
