An active trip to the water in Australia

Fishing is another way to enjoy the waters on an active trip in Australia, which is considered a fishing paradise, with a wide variety of fish species, ranging from the north to the south of the country. In coastal waters, you can fish for barramundi, snapper, marlin, etc. For salmon fishing, Tasmania is a good place to go, with a reputation for great salmon fishing.
