Live life on the water in Queensland
Fishing and boating enthusiast? You’re not alone. Especially in Queensland, where ample coastline (near 7000 kilometres of it) and a sprinkling of renowned waterways pose plenty of potential for those yearning to set sail or throw in a line.
With more than our fair share of water access, Queensland is no stranger to a boat or two. No matter your chosen vessel, you’ll find somewhere to set sail across the Sunshine State. Houseboats trundle the waterways of the Sunshine Coast while tinnies navigate the inland riverways, often with eager anglers inside.
Boating is also one of the best ways (and sometimes only ways) to get up close and personal with the state’s natural wonders. Float along the idyllic Pumicestone Passage where the Brisbane and Sunshine Coast regions meet.
Anglers are equally well accommodated, with fishing in abundance, from freshwater, to crabbing, deep sea, and the ever-popular barramundi. While fishing is welcomed across the state’s coastline, including off the majority of beaches, some destinations are more in-demand than others.
