Fantastic fishing


Faraway Bay is home to some of the best and most diverse fishing grounds in Australia. You’ll find a countless variety of challenges with reef, bottom, bait-casting, ocean sport and estuary fishing.

For the fishing enthusiasts we do full and half day fishing trips. We depart first thing after breakfast or fit in with the tides. You can fish the river and creek systems for the elusive Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Blue Nose Salmon and Black Bream, or travel out to the outer reefs for Finger-mark Baldchin Groper, Coral Trout and Mackerel.  We also trawl between the islands and coastal points where the infamous GTs (Giant Trevally) tend to roam, for those that enjoy the thrill of sport fishing that these fish provide.

We can tailor our tours to suit from the experienced to the inexperienced fisherman, so everybody can enjoy this activity.

Faraway Bay  can accommodate groups that solely what to fish.

Our guides have many years of fishing experience and are more than happy to assist guests in any way.

A full range of equipment is provided, or you are more than welcome to bring along your own.

Our policy is on a ‘catch and release’ basis – once we have caught one for the table, we release the rest.

All tours are included in package day rate.
