The Hinchinbrook Island National Park marine area, including the Hinchinbrook Channel and on the Great Barrier Reef itself, is a popular fishing destination for people from not only Townsville, Cairns, Far North Queensland and Queensland, but also from throughout Australia.
Australians from more temperate climates enjoy extended fishing-focused holidays on Far North Queensland’s Cassowary Coast, while keen anglers from Townsville just 90 minutes to the south, and from Cairns, approximately three hours north, form an integral part of the holidaymaker community chasing the monster coral trout, mackerel, Grunter, Big Reds and barramundi, among many other types of fish species, that are abundant in Hinchinbrook waters.
The Hinchinbrook Marine Cove Resort is perfectly located next to the main, public four-lane boat ramp, while the Resort itself features its own private pontoon and boat ramp from which to launch any fishing expedition. Enjoy weekend fishing with all the creature comforts of home provided by the Resort, including waterfront BBQ areas and a resort style infinity swimming pool.
For those that do not bring their own boat, you can fish from the private pontoon or we recommend charter fishing and boating services provided by a number of local operators.
