Whitsundays

Mackay and Airlie Beach, the gateway to the beautiful Whitsunday Islands in central Queensland have a diverse fishery with excellent holiday options for the whole family or small groups escaping the cooler months in the southern states of Australia from May to September each year.

The appeal of the region is the excellent saltwater and freshwater fly fishing options, set in warm and comfortable sub-tropical climates, with stunning beaches, secluded islands and fantastic accommodation options. Private Yacht charters are also available which allows you to sail throughout the islands at your leisure or with a group of friends to share the experience.

This includes secluded freshwater impoundments, rivers and creeks for Barramundi, Saratoga, and Sooty Grunter or inshore flats systems where you can sight cast Tusk Fish, Bastards, Permit Golden Trevally and Queenfish in the shallows.

With over 70 coral islands and sand cays nearby that make up part of the Great Barrier Reef system, you can also head out wide on dedicated live aboard trips to very remote coral cays, and target pelagic species such as Longtail Tuna and Giant Trevally on Fly.
