Australia is considered a great adventure destination in its own right. There are great scenery/landscapes, walking trails, diving and snorkeling, wildlife and more. One of the things that people come toAustraliafor is the fishing.
Whether you prefer deep sea fishing off the Great Barrier Reef, fishing off a beach on theMorningtonPeninsulaor on the floodplains of theNorthern Territory, this is yet another way thatAustraliaoffers great experiences for those looking for more than your average tour.
As all fishermen will tell you, fishing it is not just about the sport, but also the destination.
Fishing can be done anywhere in Australia where there is water. For example, if you are inWestern Australiayou may enjoy a full day trip from Ningaloo to theMuironIslandswhich will have you looking to land tuna, wahoo, barracuda or dolphin (Mahi Mahi) on the way. Or if you prefer fishing the shallows you can break out the spinning rods and test your skills against Queen fish, trevally, Spangled emperor, Coral trout, Coronation trout, cod, cobia, mackerel or more.
Some may prefer to head out into deeper waters and tag some quality billfish such as Black marlin, Striped marlin, Blue Marlin or sailfish.
Depending on your location you can also go bone and fly fishing or looking for Barramundi on the floodplains in the north. This is great catch and one you can enjoy on a plate a few hours later.
If you are more adventurous and have the budget to match we can even organize heli-fishing safaris taking you out to the most remote areas. You can do this up north near the Mary Floodplains or further to the east off the Cape York Peninsula. On “The Cape” expect to find a vast wilderness area stretching thousands of miles fishing for barramundi, mangrove jack, travally and more.
A trip like this is all about the immersion in the remote fishing experience and makes for a fantastic adventure in a unique destination.
