Location Map Tully Rainforest Rivers

Fish the magnificent Tully and Murray rivers for 3 days and 2 nights (more or less days/nights available) adjacent to the Cassowary Coast about 150km south of Cairns.

The Tully is a magnificent freshwater system with gin clear fast flowing sections entwined with numerous deep slower flowing pools lined by tropical rainforest or open fields.

The river abounds with fish such as Sooty Grunter, Jungle Perch, Tarpon, Mangrove Jack, and Barramundi.

BarraIt is probably the best river suited for tropical flyfishing and lure fishing, if variety and numbers are your preference.

Mangrove Jack The Murray River is a smaller system about 10km south of the Tully river and is a slower flowing "jungle river" consisting of fresh, brackish and saltwater sections, with rainforest even the mighty Daintree can't match.

We even see Cassowaries regularly on the river banks!

The main species of fish in the Murray is Barramundi and it is the most consistent river system for barra all year round.

With the low population in the area it is rare to see another boat let alone other people.
