The locations accessible to helicopter are numberless, so on a helifishing tour visitors experience fishing on a level very few of us can dream of.
There are two helifishing options available from Cairns, one that heads west into the Outback to target Barramundi on the Mitchel River, and one that heads east to meet a private charter vessel on the Great Barrier Reef to target reef and game fish such as Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Tuna and Mackerel.
The benefits of a helifishing adventure don't stop just at fishing however. You'll also take in amazing scenery, go crocodile spotting, hunt for other animals, and enjoy the seclusion of the Australian outback.
