Rockhampton is the only city in Australia where you can fly in, check-in and boat out in less than an hour targeting trophy Barramundi and King Threadfin – not only is this place the Beef Capital of Australia, it’s the Barramundi capital.
King Threadfin are also found in abundance in the Fitzroy River, the largest river on the eastern seaboard of Australia. With a total catchment area of 156,000 square kilometres, the river provides prime estuary and freshwater fishing country.
From fishing directly off the river banks in town, to open water access from Port Alma, there is something for every fisherman, weather option or targeting species.
