Australia, affectionately known as Downunder is where we live. If you are visiting for the first time there are a few things you should consider, after all its such a long way from everywhere else in the world and if you are traveling so far then you need to make the most of the time you have available. So please ask away ..you can only benefit.
And thats how we can help you the best.
You’ll see from the above map that Australia is an island continent and believe it or not, its about the same size as North America. So try to be realistic about what you’d like to see during your time available and remember there is so much more to see than the big cities (and they aren’t that big compared against some international cities).
Oh yes and then there is New Zealand our little brother in the Tasman.
New Zealand has incredible flyfishing in the salt and freshwater. But renowned for its huge population of Trout. A worthwhile stopover on the way to Oz as it shortens the trip if you are coming from the USA.
So where are we based? Well find the spot north of Brisbane and a tad below Noosa. Thats the Sunshine Coast and its where Flyfish Downunder calls home. A bit like California I guess but far less crowded. And we have world class Tuna fishing close off shore at certain times of the year along with many other species at other times (have you heard about the Saratoga?)
Now where do we find most of our visitors going in Australia? Well probably due to the publicity they invariably end up in Sydney then up at Cairns to see the Great Barrier Reef and perhaps out to Ayers Rock
(the real name is actually ULURU).
Seeing these three locations in one trip would take a lot of travel and about eight days if you had a couple of days in each location.
And there is so much more to be seen!!!
If you are looking for the absolute best saltwater flyfishing in the world then look no further than Cape York. Have a read of our Cape York information as it is as good as we say. To get there you need to fly out of Cairns on a short flight to Weipa. Allow half a day there and return so plan on a minimum of 2 days to experience Cape York.
BUT believe me its a trip of a lifetime. 50 species on fly over a week is achievable.
There is so much to tell you but it can’t be covered all here. Our strongest recommendation is to contact us early as possible when you are planning your trip downunder. Give us as much information as possible then lets email so that you are well informed about embarking on a trip of a lifetime downunder.
