Fishing in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park
What Type of Fish Can You Expect to Catch in the Whitsundays?
Bluefin and mackerel are in abundance all year round. They can usually be located by the sight of seabirds skipping over the surface of the water where the tuna are. Casting or trolling around the headlands and in the passages between the islands should also land you a few good tuna for dinner. There is excellent estuary fishing to be found in Gulnare Inlet, Hill Inlet, Nara and Macona Inlets.
Coral reef fishing can provide the likes of Coral Trout, Sweetlip, Emperor, Gropers etc. Before visiting the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, it is important you study the zoning map for the area you are visiting to be sure of the activities that you can do and where you can do them. The information for the zoning map can be found at
