Best Fishing Spots In Australia

With fishing one of the most popular activities in Australia, even raising the question of the best fishing spots is a highly contentious prospect. Is it fly fishing, deep sea adventures, rock fishing, stream and lake angling or sports fishing experiences? The issue is debated far and wide and likely will never be resolved unanimously. Of course it depends on the season as different locations are better in different months of the year. While serious anglers keep their best locations a highly guarded secret, a quick internet search reveals a number of websites including tourism agencies that are keen to publicise their suggestions to promote travel to the regions.

Here is a collection of ideas we have sourced, but unfortunately, yet to experience to provide first hand feedback:-

Check for Local Conditions

Whatever is your preferred fishing style or location, always check with the local authorities when you are entering areas that are new to you. Due to water conditions and species sustainability concerns, restrictions and bans are intermittently placed on specific fishing areas.

Wherever you’re fishing, if it is for sport or your own consumption, be considerate, take only what you need and within legal limits and do your bit for sustainability. Always take your rubbish with you and follow all best practice to prevent nets and lines being discarded in the waterways. Plastics, lines and nets pose massive risks to the marine wildlife and our environment.
