| Our Safari experiences have you fishing the pristine run off waters of the Mary River System that flows into Chambers Bay. Flora and fauna at this time of year is breathtaking, and the birdlife is phenomenal. You will experience crocodiles in their own habitat and where pigs roam wild and water buffaloes converge on the edges of the floodplains.
The fishing experience not only covers Barramundi, but also Golden Snapper, Threadfin Salmon over a metre, and don’t forget the awesome pulling power of the Black Jewfish.
