Skyringville is the original mouth of the Burnett River. Access to Skyringville is mainly from around the front, providing the weather is good. There is a small hole in the wall opposite the Bulk Sugar Terminal that you can get through in smaller tinnies. You need a plenty of tide to get through and back out. The "Ville" has many smaller creeks and wide shallow sandflats. This makes it ideal for whiting, bream, cod, flathead and trumpeter. Seasonally it also fishes well for prawns, mangrove jack, threadfin salmon, fingermark and even the occasional barra. Mud crabs are also targeted here with reasonable success.
