Located off the north coast of Queensland, Hinchinbrook Island is Australia’s largest island national park and is part of both the Wet Tropics and Great Barrier Reef World Heritage areas. The surrounding estuaries and creeks have been protected from commercial net fishing since 1998.

Before heading out on the water make sure you are aware of transit lanes, size and bag limits, fishing zones in the marine park and seasonal closures for some fish species like barramundi. Visit the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority website www.gbrmpa.gov.au.
