Located on the doorstep of Gladstone, Curtis Island (around 47km long) remains one of central Queensland’s hidden secrets. Picture a 6.60 metre vessel parked out front of an island home, an ocean to the east, estuaries to the west and 4WD vehicle fuelled for an inland excursion.
Maybe you have a certain species on a bucket list or wish to catch your personal best or try for something new? You’d be surprised what can be achieved from this area, under 600 km from Brisbane. Species and sizes available include 90-100+ cm barramundi, 70-130 cm king threadfin salmon, 15 to 35 kilo Spanish mackerel, 10 to 30+ kilo giant trevally, cobia, Queenfish, metre-plus giant herring, coral trout, large-mouth nannygai, estuary cod, juvenile black marlin and so much more.
It all depends what you wish to achieve. The mud crabs will blow your mind, let alone the scenery. Travel the remote coastlines discovering turtles, dugongs and sea birds; an array of life surrounds Curtis Island including humpback whales migrating during May to October. Crack mud crab shells, down an ice cold brew and let the sun sink away to mark the end of a special day. You let the environment do the work; it’s been practising for thousands of years.

Had the most amazing experience with the helicopter and fishing at Curtis Island. All I can say is try it, it was the most incredible joy flight up over Curtis Island, an absolutely cracker of a flight. Just to see the island from the air, so enjoyable. With Johnny’s expert guidance and professional attitude, we had a cracker of a trip. I would recommend this charter to any one, just to have a look at the vastness of the area and diverse flora and fauna on this great coastline. Thank you Johnny for a trip I will never forget.
Our four-day adventure with Johnny to Curtis Island was simply stunning, so many choices for fishing or exploring! To think such a wild & diverse wetland is tucked just out of the way is incredible. Our scenic heli flight was the perfect end to an epic four days. This place is special & Johnny’s passion & knowledge of the area really shines through. Thanks so much for having us & providing Dad & I with memories that will last a lifetime.
