Palm Island and Hinchinbrook Barramundi

Some of the most beautiful fishing areas are just to the North of Townsville in the Hinchinbrook Chanel and the Palm Island group. For Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Fingermark and great crabbing the Hinchinbrook is the pinnacle of estuarine fishing.

Our professional guides Dean Beech and Adam Finlay have years of experience in this area and will provide a fantastic experience in this beautiful area. Trips range from day trips to 7 day live aboard mother shipping adventures and are suitable from a single person to 10. We also do Barra tours in the more local area of Townsville in the Bohle and Haughton rivers and in Crocodile and alligator creeks.

The palm group is a beautiful place to go for some great inshore reef fishing and lazing away on the beautiful beaches. We run trips to this area mixed in with either continuing up into the Hinchinbrook or out to the reef.

  • Great trip out of Cairns on Sir Reel with a terrific crew. The skipper worked hard to find us fish all week and the boys were amazing around the deck making our life easy with rigs and fish. Chris was the master chef all week. Cannot rate these guys highly enough. Recommended.Dale Bainbridge
  • We just got off the boat after a 4 day fishing trip and all 10 of us loved it. All the staff were great and could'nt do enough to make you feel comfortable which made our trip thoughly enjoyable. Mick the chef cooked up a storm, and I think ive put on 2kgs in 4 days, hehe. Carl and Bill were sensational deckies and really new their stuff and never stoped working throughout the whole trip. We picked a bad week for the weather unfortunatly, but a big thanks goes out to the skipper (Bob) for always trying to get us on the fish when mother nature was against us. Thanks again, Chris from the Wandering Fisho's 2016.Christopher Rimmer
