If you’re a fishing fanatic you’ll love the Tweed region. Home to the magnificent Tweed river, a plethora of waterways and world-class beaches, Tweed in northern New South Wales offers some of the best fishing in the state.
Here are just a few fishing spots to visit in the area.
A fisherman’s dream, Clarence River is home to the largest species of bass in Australia as well as beautiful rainforests, sugarcane fields and historical towns that line the riverbank, making it an extra atmospheric fishing destination.
Lakes Drive Boat Ramp
The perfect place to head out for a day on the water with family and friends. Cruise along Tennenora Creek and snag a couple flathead and bluefish or pack a picnic and explore one of the four islands that make up the Tweed Estuary Nature Reserve: Caddys, Daveys, Big, and Womgin Islands.
Brunswick River is a fishing gold mine that’s almost too good to be true. Overflowing with giant trevally, jacks, tarpon, bream and sportfish, you’re guaranteed a catch all year round.
If you’re looking to snag a wide variety of fish, it’s hard to beat Snapper Rocks. Bonito, tailor and tuna can be caught off the rocks between Rainbow Bay and Point Danger, or for more variety – including bream, dart, flathead and whiting – you can head up to the sand jetty.
Dry Dock Road Boat Ramp
A local favourite, Dry Dock Road Boat Ramp has everything you need for an easy, relaxing day on the water. With plenty of parking nearby and popular Tweed cafe Hunkydory just across the road, grab brekkie or lunch and stroll along the boardwalk or the beach before setting sail.
GemLife Tweed Waters offers on site storage for caravans, boats and other recreational vehicles so when the water is calling you can answer at a moment’s notice.
