the lure shop




Located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef

The Lure Shop Tackle World Cooktown has everything you need for your far north fishing and hunting adventure!

We have a wide range of local knowledge that comes from boating, hunting, diving, camping, and fishing in the area, and stocked with guns and ammo, and all your fishing and boating supplies, between it and its sister stores, Camping Cape York and Marine & RV, there is nothing we don’t have in Cooktown.

All members of our team hunt, fish, and spend time under the water, we are always happy to tell you where the fish are and what they are biting on, and yes the barramundi are bigger up here!

So, guys, if it’s that next pig hunting/4wd adventure, 1000lb black Marlin or that elusive metre-long Barramundi or even bonefish, we have you covered and will endeavour to make sure that not only will you get your catch of a lifetime, you will have the time of your life in God’s country doing it!
