Weipa, Australia

One of the best sport and fly-fishing opportunities Down Under is in Weipa, in Far North Queensland. In a country where aquatic sports rule, Weipa takes the cake because charters offer the best active and laid-back tours around. One choice is to wade waist-deep in the clear blue water and hope for a nibble from a barramundi or blue salmon while swigging an Australian brew. The other, more adventurous choice is to venture along creeks, rivers and coastal reefs and fight the notoriously testy red emperor, queen fish and coral trout. Whichever one you settle on, make sure you bring your best equipment, as this location is one of the most challenging you'll ever find.

Must-do: You haven't had the full Aussie fishing experience until you've trekked along the coral beds and tried your hand at pulling out a beautiful giant herring. Link to Weather Back to activities
