Discover the amazing Cape York Peninsula in the far north Queensland, Australia. Cape York, is the northernmost point of the Australian continent. 

The Cape York Peninsula is about 137 000 km2 in total (more than Greece or England), but is only populated by 18 000 inhabitants!

This is an extremely eroded and wild territory. The greatest wealth is at sea and along the coast of this peninsula almost unchanged for millennia.

The variety of fish is amazing here, you can start the day hunting for tunas offshore, then chase permits on the flats formed by the estuary and end in the river trying to catch the famous Saratoga or Pacific tarpon!

It is not unusual to catch more than twenty fish species on fly during the trip: golden, ignobilis and diamond trevally, cobia, tuna, queenfish, snappers and of course barramundi, just to name a few.

The guides know very well this wild territory and the best areas for barramundi and permit, the two most attractive species.

You will be staying on mothership in the heart of the fishing areas. The food is good and varied based on fresh fish.

A superb trip in the heart of the wild Australia  with one of the largest variety of fish species on earth for the fly angler.
