Fraser Island Fly / Drive Experience
The ultimate Fraser Island two day experience. From the Sunshine Coast, fly by light aircraft to Fraser Island and land right on the beach where your four-wheel drive and your personal fishing guide awaits. Spend the day fishing in all of the right spots as your personal guide does all of the driving and all the worrying!
Stay overnight at the magnificent Kingfisher Bay Resort before another full day of fishing. Catch the flight back to the mainland and arrive feeling like you’ve had a week away.
Please remember that there is no freshwater fishing on the Island, as its prohibited, there is plenty of ocean to fish in, so you will always catch something. The best times to catch some fish are dawn and dusk but if the local conditions are safe and the gutters are right you can most likely catch a fish anytime. The best gutters on Fraser Island for fishing are north from the Maheno wreck to Indian Head or close by to Waddy Point.
Sandy Cape, Waddy Point, Middle rocks and Indian head attract tailor, bream, mackerel and shark. It is the beach fishing on the eastern, ocean side of the northern half of the Seventy Five Mile Beach that lures many anglers, particularly between July and October when the tailor run. It is worth the long trip to Wathumba on the western side, and the coast between Rooney Point and Moon Point can yield whiting, bream and flathead, and there are plenty of yabby patches along the entire coast.
If you’re on the West side of Fraser, try around Wathumba Creek or Moon Creek, Also many keen anglers have had good luck fishing in Coongul Creek. On the beach look at the waves for Tailor, you could even see a Mullet or a Dart in the waves. It also can pay off if you can cast back to the back gutter, look for the white water for the larger Tailor.
