If you’re a keen fisherman, Proserpine, also known as barramundi country, is a must! A 30 minute drive inland from Proserpine will bring you to Peter Faust Dam, famous for water sports and fishing. To find the best fishing spots for large game, we recommend hiring a private fishing tour and charter.
Fishing not your thing? The Proserpine River Eco Tour will take you through the Goorganga Wetlands where you can experience traditional Aussie bushman food and search for wild crocodiles from the safety of a boat.
Enjoy these sites and activities while in Proserpine:

  • Trek, swim & be amazed at the beautiful Cedar Creek Falls
  • Sip away at the Whitsunday Gold Coffee Plantation
  • Learn about the history of Proserpine at the Proserpine Historical Museum
