Is it the scenery or the mecca for barramundi fishing charters that makes Hinchinbrook the most awesome place to visit?
Apart from being a bucket list destination for saltwater barra anglers wanting to do Barramundi fishing charters, it’s also an area that families can undertake an amazing variety of adventure activities.
If you’re into bush-walking we have the stunning Thorsbourne Trail running the entire distance on the outer side of the island and voted among the top few bush walks anywhere in the world. The amount of different ecosystems you trek through is incredible and just ask anyone who has done it about the stunning photographic opportunities available.
Speaking of photographic opportunities one of the best things I have ever done was to take a chopper flight over the island. It gives just the most amazing perspective that you don’t see when you are on the water.
Although when we are doing our Barramundi fishing charters the view of Mt Bowen all the way down to Mt Diamantina is also very impressive. Chopper flights can be arranged in Ingham with Josh from Liddles air services.
If your family is into camping there are several camp sites available including Macushla, The Haven and Gould Island. A permit is required from Queensland parks and wildlife and can be booked online.
And for those that want to catch an illusive metre plus barramundi, take a look at our video below for what you can expect on a good day.
As you’ll notice, fish are targeted with an array of techniques including casting lures, trolling lures, jigging soft plastics and vibes plus live bait.
If you have your own boat and live in northern Australia, you can learn the exact secrets to catching big barra consistently in our online course Barra Basics.
