The Great Barrier reef located in the Coral Sea is one of the most diverse marine ecosystems on the planet. With more fish species found here than any other tropical reef system, this playground in Far North Queensland offers some outstanding fly fishing and holiday options.
Cairns, Port Douglas and the magnificent Daintree Rainforest lie adjacent to the northern region of Australia’s Great Barrier reef with guided day trips to week-long mothership adventures to some very remote reef and flats systems. With world-class scuba diving, snorkelling, rafting, island stays and outdoor adventure activities, it’s also a great destination for the whole family.
Offshore, this region has one of the premier Billfish fisheries in the world, from Cairns through to Lizard Island in the north with Giant Grander Black Marlin available from September – December each year and Juvenile Black Marlin from June – September on Fly.
The expansive coral reefs are home to huge Giant Trevally, Emperor, and Red Bass while on the flats and inshore regions around the Claremont Isles you can target Blue Bastards, Triggerfish and Permit.
Inland you can target Barramundi in some of the large freshwater impoundments and Jungle Perch in the tropical mountain streams, while Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Queenfish and Trevally can be found in the estuaries, rivers and mangrove systems dotted along the coastline.
