Welcome to Heli-fishing Herbert River Gorge

Hinchinbrook Adventures in partnership with Liddle’s Air Service are the only company in Australia privileged to carry out these amazing tours in this National Park. We depart around 8.00 am and won't be back till late afternoon with around 6 hours of fishing time at up to 5 different locations depending on the fishing and your desire to move.

Hinchinbrook Adventures Heli-Fishing Tours operate in the pristine wilderness of the Herbert River Gorge, located in the Girringun
National Park. Once over the Girringun National Park you will arrive at some of Australia’s most remote, fresh water fishing locations, targeting species such as Jungle Perch, Brim and Barramundi.

Herbert River Gorge and Girringun National Park

Girringun National Park is over 1500 square kilometres and encompasses a myriad of Australia’s most spectacular waterfalls which includes Wallaman Falls – the longest single drop waterfall in Australia, Blenco Falls and Herbert River Falls.  The locations are spectacular, but from the air the beauty and the views have to be seen to be believed. 

All fishing equipment will be provided as well as a gourmet picnic lunch and refreshments.  Tour guests need not bring a thing, except closed in shoes, sun safe clothing and a SENSE OF ADVENTURE!!
