Anglers can target reef, blue water, river and estuary and freshwater / lagoon species, as desired. Tidal estuaries, white sandy beaches, near-shore reefs, rocky headlands and even fresh water rainforest reaches are accessible on good tides. This variety and diversity will be sure to have your head in a spin - with quality angling on offer for the lure or fly caster.


The remote waters south of Pera Head on the west coast of Cape York have previously been the domain of truly adventurous anglers. A thousand lifetimes worth of reefs, rivers, creeks, flats and lagoons are just waiting for the uninitiated and round here, the fish grow big!


There is a massive wetland area south of Aurukun, based around the Archer, Love, Kirk and Kendell Rivers. This area is of huge ecological significance and is the reason why wildlife is so abundant. The floodplains, lagoons and salt-pan areas dotting the upper reaches of these creeks and rivers provide a nursery for Saratoga, Sootie Grunter, Mangrove Jack, Tarpon and of course, the mighty Barra.


There has been plenty of press given to the quality Barramundi fishing in this area. Cricket score catches of Barra can be had after the wet-season and again in Oct-Nov. There is also amazing diversity of Barra fishing, giving anglers the choice of targeting big, fat, up-stream Barra or their startling-silver, yellow tailed cousins in the downstream reaches.


Angling options around here go well beyond Barra, with a range of the north's premier sportfish on the list. All types of fish can be caught on a range of tackle using an equally large range of techniques.
