Come To Cairns For That Amazing Aussie Fishing Holiday

Guest post by John Anderson

The land Down Under is emerging as one of the most visited holiday destinations in the world.  And one of the reasons behind this popularity is the variety of attractions that one can experience and explore.  From the tropical rainforests to the outback desserts of the red centre, from high country snow fields to the unending string of white beaches, Australia has awed and overwhelmed tourists since as long we know. Adventure holidays to romantic getaways, educational tours to backpacking across the country- Australia know how to make the most of its wonderful natural wonders and beauties.

It is quite a difficult task to isolate just one destination that is worth seeing in the country. But if you are a fishing enthusiast, we would be able to help you out a little. To make the most of your fishing holiday, you have to be in Cairns, Far North Queensland.  This place offers some of the best light tackles sports fishing opportunities on the globe. From the rivers, lakes, estuaries and more, Cairns is the place to be.   The tropical climate and the Great Barrier Reef is the actual crowd puller. After Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane Cairns is the fourth most popular destination. The close proximity of the city to the Great Barrier Reef is the reason as to why it attracts a significant number of tourists per year. 

Cairns is the haven for the fishing enthusiasts. The beautiful beaches, palm trees, the thick tropical forests and white sandy beaches is what welcome you in this part of the country.  You may want to spend a quite holiday in the spectacular resorts and hotels or embark on an adventure trip that will keep the adrenalin rush going. The cable car from Cairns to Kurranda in the mountains, takes you on a ride over the dense tropical forests, over magnificent valleys and waterfalls.  You might also want to take the train route just to marvel at the scenic beauty and capture it in some great photos.  The local art shops, souvenir shops and cafes are worth a visit.

If your sole aim is to land a massive black marlin or the famous barramundi, the Great Barrier Reef will take care of it all. Be it heavy tackle game fishing or light tackle sport fishing, freshwater or saltwater lure and fly fishing, you can indulge in all right here in Cairns. A fishing trip on the deep blue sea with the hopes of hooking a marlin gets you all worked up. The splendid creature glistening and shimmering as it leaps in the air, thrashing the ocean surface wildly and loudly. No wonder it is the game fishing capital of the planet. Check here for some of the finest fishing spots in Cairns.
For the likes of wahoo, Spanish mackerel, dolphin fish, yellow fin tuna, barracuda, sailfish, trevally and more, there are light tackle sport fishing options that you can indulge in. The region is also gaining popularity as a hot spot for saltwater flyfishing. This is actually a Disneyland for all fishermen, there are so many things to do that one finds it difficult to keep up to it and it becomes a rather hectic holiday.

Swimming, diving, snorkeling, fishing, scuba diving, kayaking sailing, helicopter flights, skyrail, safari lodge, go Kart racing, nightlife, casino, golfing and more, there are so much to do. And not to mention the shopping, markets, amazing cuisine, beverages and more.
