Boyne Island and Tannum Sands are located about 20 minutes drive south of Gladstone and is home to countless creatures of the deep.
The area boasts an array of excellent estuary fishing hotspots. The Boyne River is synonymous for its huge Barra, Bream, Jack and Grunter, while Lilley’s Beach produces excellent Whiting, Flathead and Bream. The mangroves are home to many fish and test the skills of most anglers. Fishing from the banks of the river can also be a masterstroke as a ready supply of Bream and Grunter waiting to be caught. South Trees Inlet and the South Trees pipeline provide safe areas to fish when the weather’s rough.
A catch of Barramundi, Mangrove Jack, Grunter, Salmon or Bream is not uncommon. Turkey Beach is also less than an hour’s drive from Gladstone. You will find the peaceful surroundings of Turkey Beach. Sheltered in the waters of Rodd’s Bay, Turkey Beach and the surrounding tidal creeks are home to many aquatic treasures.
Each year the Gladstone Region plays host to Australia’s biggest family fishing competition, the Boyne Tannum Hookup. This popular event sees fishing enthusiasts travelling from far and wide to join in on the action. Click here to find out more!
