Port Hinchinbrook’s fishing conditions and situation is so good that it is the location for a popular annual fishing festival, considered one of the world’s best. Perfect for light tackle fishing the catch here is predominantly Black Marlin, sailfish, tuna and mahi mahi and closer inland the big barramundi, with mackeral hugging the reef running parallel to the clean, deserted beaches. Fish close to the shoreline or island hop around the Great Barrier Reef, either way this is a quiet, remote and beautiful region.
