The Best Barramundi Fishing Tours in Australia

Every angler should experience the thrill of hooking Australia’s most iconic fish at least once in their lifetime. There is nothing quite like going head-to-head with a thrashing, ferocious barramundi, while surrounded by a pristine and picturesque environment.

Angling Adventures can offer you the ultimate adventure by providing access to a wide range of barra fishing tours. We provide anglers with local knowledge and advice to help them find the best freshwater and saltwater fishing trips in Australia.

About the Australian barramundi

Our barramundi fishing trips will test both skill and tackle of experienced and novice anglers alike. Whether encountered casting, trolling or fly fishing, few fish get an anglers adrenalin going like the mighty “barra”. Barramundi are just about the perfect sport fish. A highly aggressive and opportunistic hunter, they can be taken anywhere from picturesque lilly-fringed inland billabongs to river mouths and headlands. They thrive in both freshwater and saltwater environments, feeding on crustaceans, molluscs and smaller fish. 

The barramundi's signature surface strike or “boof” is a sound that will be etched on your memory forever not mention their magnificent aerial gyrations as they attempt to dislodge your lure.
