Easily accessible by road, rail and coach, and just a short one-hour flight from Brisbane to Rockhampton (the region’s central hub), the Capricorn region is an ideal fishing destination for you to pull up for a day, or two, or longer.
Whether you are casting a line from the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River, or require some more expert guidance onboard a fishing, charter boat, cruising or sailing experience from Keppel Bay, your stress-free day on the water will soon become so more than just fishing.
Our local fishing charters are a great way to get to the best spots and gain local knowledge – and all the gear is included! Experienced anglers are more than happy to pass on their local secrets, helping you bag a decent catch.
If you’re bringing your own boat to town, you’ll be happy to know there are multi-lane boat ramps with pontoons and toilets right next to many prime fishing areas.
The time for procrastinating is over…
Locals are saying the barramundi fishing is the best they’ve seen for over 50 years and is only getting better!
But don’t let your experience stop once you’ve packed up your tackle gear. At the end of the day, fire up the pan with some lemon butter sauce and cook your catch at Rockhampton’s newest and largest accommodation, Empire Apartment Hotel which is located in the heart of the CBD Riverfront Precinct. The 2018 Travellers’ Choice deluxe apartments, overlooking Rocky’s spectacular river catchment, are fully self-contained, to help you craft your mouth-watering Barra recipe.
Be sure to pack your camera – you’ll want photographic evidence of your Capricorn fishing and master chef delights! Amateurs and seasoned pros alike are sure to hook and cook an ‘Insta worthy’ catch.
This is what Rockhampton and the Capricorn Coast is all about and these experiences and more are all at your fingertips when you #visitcapricorn and explore the #southerngreatbarrierreef.
Tick a beef and barra experience off your bucket list and visit capricorn holidays to plan your ‘on and off the water’ itinerary!
