2.5 Hours


Hook-A-Barra is located on the Daintree Saltwater Barramundi Farm, which is Lot 3, Vixies Road, Wonga Beach, Queensland. We are about a 90 minute drive from Cairns, or about 30 minutes north of Port Douglas. Guests need to self-drive or make their own way to here, as there is no public transport or transfer service available at this time.

What To Bring

Everything is provided. Hook-a-Barra has a huge range of quality gear, including a specialist selection of lures with everything from hard bodied minnows to soft plastics, poppers and paddle tails, and a fly-fishing option for expert anglers. Add sunscreen, sunnies and caps.

There are just two golden rules:

  • We cannot allow personal rods and tackle to be used in our ponds because they create a bio-security risk to our entire farm.
  • We don’t allow treble hooks and use only single, barbless hooks to protect our fish from needless injury
