Localities › Cape York › Princess Charlotte Bay
Princess Charlotte Bay is 350kms NNW of Cairns on the eastern side of Cape York. Access is by 1.5 hours plane flight from Cairns flying over Port Douglas and the World Heritage Daintree rainforest, and then west of Cooktown over the Normanby and Kennedy Rivers in Lakefield
Being shielded from
the south-east trade winds, Princess Charlotte Bay provides an ideal haven
for the keen angler.
The area plays host to a myriad of extensive mangrove
river systems, lagoons and offshore coral reefs.
The fishing is as varied
as the Great Barrier Reef itself with Coral Trout, Red Emperor, Mud Crabs
galore, the mighty Barramundi, and larger Mackerel and pelagics.
