Full Day

A full day charter is generally in excess of 8 hours on the water and sometimes will be split into two sessions with a rest period in the middle of the day.

Start and end times will vary according to the time of year and the time the sun rises or sets on the dam.

Full day trips are $750 for a maximum of two guests/anglers.  A third angler can be added for an additional cost of $375.

Half Day Charters

Half day charters are generally 4+ hours on the dam and subject to availability, your choice of morning or afternoon sessions fishing over the prime bite period.

Ask Luke which he recommends according to the time of year and what is fishing better.

We offer deals for fishing longer multi day trips in excess of 3 days. And, if you need help with options for staying in the area, get in touch and we can help you out there or read about the different options for accommodation here.

Birdwatching Charters

We can tailor make a birdwatching tour on the dam for you. Luke’s wife Kelly is a self-proclaimed bird nerd. Check out her 2022 bird list (so far!) for the dam and surrounds here.

Fishing Peter Faust with Luke Fallon

Luke loves fishing Faust so much he lives less than 5 minutes from Peter Faust Dam!

Faust is best known for its consistency of big fish and fish over the metre mark. In 2021 our Peter Faust results show that on average 1 in 4 fish are over the metre mark!

Luke has been guiding for barramundi since the 1990’s. Growing up in nearby Townsville, Peter Faust Dam was one of the first dams that he ever fished and he’s spend many years fishing and exploring the dam since.

Fishing is permitted at Proserpine Dam via SIP permits from Fisheries Queensland which can be purchased online here.

Peter Faust Dam is located 20 minutes outside of Proserpine in North Queensland along the picturesque Crystal Brook Road. The airport at Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast Airport) is also the main gateway to the Whitsundays with flights daily via Brisbane and is a convenient option from visitors from further afield. Hire cars are available at the airport.

Peter Faust Dam is also a less-than 3hr drive from Townsville and 1.5 hrs from Mackay.

Accommodation options are plentiful both at the dam (cabin style dongas or self contained camping/van sites) and nearby in Proserpine and just 45 minutes to Airlie Beach and we can also help arrange accommodation for your stay as well as airport transfers, groceries and much more.

If you are interested in joining us on board get in touch now. Last minute enquiries welcome (we live very close to the dam.)
