Cairns Estuary Fishing
Located just five minutes from the centre of lovely Cairns city are some of the most stunning natural habitats in Tropical North Queensland providing excellent fishing conditions.
Get ready to experience an unrivalled fishing experience in the upper reaches of the world famous Cairns Trinity Inlet, also known as Cairns Harbour, set against a backdrop of luxuriant tropical foliage, mountains swathed in rainforests and one of the most varied and fertile ecosystems in the world.
Explore more than 90 kilometres of tortuous waterways in one of the custom built boats accompanied by guides who know where the very best locations are.
Subject to weather conditions and the tide, you might be able to fish up to twelve different species in a single location.
Cairns fishing tours take place daily on the estuary, which is lined with mangroves and hosts an astonishing array of species including Mangrove Jack, Trevally, Grunter, Salmon, Flathead, Gold Spot Cod, Fingermark and the coveted Barramundi. More than forty fish species are regularly spotted and caught in the incredible region of the Cairns Waterway.
Cairns Estuary Fishing tours start with the collection of live bait and then take you up Trinity Inlet, various channels, creeks, gutters and tracts of open water. The fishing locations you finally settle at will be carefully selected taking into consideration the day’s weather and tides.
This Cairns Estuary Fishing Tour can be enjoyed by people of all levels of experience. Tackle and bait will be provided, and beginners will benefit from instruction from experienced guides, who will be able to impart the best techniques for making successful catches.

Had a lovely trip, caught some fish but unfortunately were not for size for taking home. Caught a few catfish and a stone fish as well-couldnt take then home either. Terrific and friendly fishing guide with a helpful knowledge of the waterways.
