The Best Tailwater in Australia

Experience fly fishing at its best on Australia’s premier fly fishery, the Goulburn River. Along the 75 kilometres stretch of Blue Ribbon tailwater, you will find an abundance of mayfly and caddis, producing some of the best dry fly fishing in the country. It also has teriffic grasshopper fishing in the warmer months, and hatches that persist right through until the end of May.

But, the Goulburn is not your only option; rivers like Jamieson, Howqua, Delatite, and Big also offer fantastic trout fishing opportunities up in the hills. Think mountain streams with stunning scenery and eager fish eating dry flies. Closer to home, Goulburn River tributaries like the Rubicon and Acheron offer excellent fly fishing for larger wild browns.

We can also arrange visits to historically significant fly fishing locations such as Mr. Findlay’s Water Race, and we have private access to numerous properties right across the district.

The Goulburn River Adventure trip opens the doors to chase the better browns of the region - with four days to really get your drift boat fishing going

What’s Included in Your Trip

We promise you an unmatched fly fishing experience in the Goulburn Valley. Starting from our Flyshop in Alexandra, enjoy four days of guided fishing with no set agenda, letting us mould your trip based on the conditions and your preferences each day.


Upon arrival, you will be shown to your comfortable private accommodation. After settling in, join us back at our base for a complementary BBQ dinner and trip planning session.

Fishing Experience

Day-to-day, there are no limitations to what we can do. Be it drift boat, walk-wade, or even specialist instruction in particular fishing techniques, streamcraft, flycasting, or even beginner lessons. Whatever your needs; we have you covered. You can drift as a group or split boats into different areas. Fish as a group, or put beginners with our best instructors while the more experienced members go drifting with our best guides. We organise each day as per your preference.

Experienced fly fishers will relish the flexible itinerary and ability to walk/wade fish or drift boat on any given day. Beginners are also well-catered for, with instructors able to take beginners on a journey from never having held a rod to catching fish on the drift boat after a couple of days of tuition.

We cater to all experience levels, from beginners to seasoned fly fishers. Our guides are full time professionals, comitted to ensuring that you make the most of your time with them.
