Fishery Falls is a tiny stop on the Bruce Hwy about 30km south of Cairns. There is not much here apart from a few houses and a pub, which is just in front of the Caravan Park. We chose this place because it’s quiet and un-crowded as well as beautiful. We can put the boat in the Mulgrave River, which is just down the road, and fish. Also we can easily get to Cairns for our diving expeditions.
We’ve been out in our boat a few times, taking in the sights and trying our luck for a few more mud crab. We weren’t very lucky with the mud crab but we did see our biggest crocodile so far on this trip, it was about 4m long and was resting on the bank just up from the boat ramp (sorry no photo).
