Access some of North Queensland’s best remote fishing locations via helicopter (aka 'heli-fishing') on this Townsville outdoors excursion. Your professional pilot takes you to two prime spots on the Haughton River, Bray Island or Cape Cleveland, where you can spend most of your time waiting for a bite. You’re provided with the necessary gear, coolers, and a delicious picnic lunch that includes wine or beer. Your experienced fishing guide knows these waters well, rewarding you with some great insight on this small-group tour, limited to six people, that is suitable for both experienced and novice anglers.

Make your way to the Townsville Airport to meet your pilot and start your fishing tour by helicopter. On this outing, known as 'heli-fishing,' you get to wear a 2-way radio headset that allows you to communicate while in flight. Look out at landmarks that your pilot points out en route to two different fishing locations during your 5-hour tour.

Start with a 20-minute scenic flight over the southern side of Townsville to reach the mouth of the Haughton River. Land at a prime location near the river and set up on a sand bank to enjoy 1.5 hours of fishing.

As for gear, it's all there. Your guide provides equipment such as overhead rods, spin reels, nets, coolers (eskys), chairs, and insect repellent, among other necessary gear. Your tackle box comes stocked with filleting knives, lures, and bait.

Next you'll take a short flight to either Bray Island, a rocky outcrop surrounded by deep waters, or to an estuary near Cape Cleveland. When you land, your guide breaks out a gourmet picnic lunch accompanied by sparkling wine or beer. After a satisfying meal, start your next 1.5-hour fishing session.

On this half-day trip, expect to cast a line for mangrove jack, salmon, flathead, and barramundi (from February thru October). At Bray Island, you'll also fish for cod, mackerel and trevally. (Bonus: You may spot other wildlife including crocodiles, dugongs, turtles and humpback whales.)

A 15-minute helicopter flight takes you and your catch back to Townsville at the end of this memorable fishing excursion.
