Barron River Barramundi Fishing
Reviewed Nov 2016
Cairns provides access to many great estuary systems. Get in before the cold snap in July, as the barra and mangrove jack fishing can go off. Gutters and submerged snags around the low tide work well. Morning and late afternoon is best for throwing a few lures!
Beautiful Cairns , not too friendly !

I visit each year. However, I now defer to Townsville for fuel and supplies. Marlin marina is a government entity and will charge "multi rates " even on an end berth. A few months ago they seemed to have a lot of vacancies. Anchoring in the river is ok but watch out if you need to run a genny , much weed .To take on fuel one needs to pay an extra berthing fee. Acceptable if one needs several tonnes ! My family lives in Cairns so i'll always return , but by car.
Cairns is a great town and beautiful
Very high cost of Marlin Marina
