Hull Heads

Postcode: 4854

Hull Heads is on the southern edge of the Hull River just inside the mouth. To get to Hull Heads turn east off the Bruce Highway onto the Tully – Hull Road at Silky Oak Creek (just north of the Tully River). The concrete ramp can be used on all tides & in all weather conditions. Bream, flathead, whiting, mangrove jacks, mud crabs & barramundi can be caught in the river either side of the boat ramp.

An all tide channel leads from the boat ramp to the mouth of the Hull River & into Kennedy Bay. From here boaties can access some good fishing around Tam O’Shanter Point & the numerous inner islands. Mound (Purtaboi), Dunk (Coonanglebah), Mung Um Gnackum, Kumboola, Thorpe (Timana), Richards (Bedarra), Wheeler (Toolgbar), Coombe & Hudson (Coolah) Islands are all within 6nm (12km) of the mouth & provide some great fishing opportunities. This area is made up of a variety of Marine Park Zones so check them out before fishing.

Access to estuary and reef fishing from an all weather boat ramp and pontoon makes Hull Heads a popular spot for boating and fishing enthusiasts. Tully Coastguard operates from the mouth of the river. Caravan Parks and bed & breakfast accommodation await the weary traveller.
