Byron Bay; Gold Coast

Are some of the famous holiday venues on the Australian Coast, these resorts offer a year-round calm climate and excellent fishing.

The Tweed River is known for its larger-than-average bream specimens and the Southport Broadwater is one of the most bountiful whiting grounds in the country.

Byron Bay

Charming beaches which provide top surf fishing for bream, tailor and whiting.

The prime locations for tailor are the Watego's Beach and Cape Byron. While large jewfish and northern bluefin tuna are taken from the rocks.

Brunswick Heads

During winter months, the retaining wall is an excellent spot to try fishing for bream and luderick. Blue swimmer and mud crabs are abundant in the river.

Tweed Estuary

Best yields during summer months include flathead, whiting and bream. Jewfish, tailor, luderick and bream are common in the winter. Estuary is famous for its large bream. The wall downstream from Boyds Bay Bridge is a 'hot spot' for bream.

Snapper Rock

Located at the northern tip of Tweed headland, which is a favorite spot for yielding tailor. This is a safe location in most weather conditions, the best time is in early morning or evening.

Southport Broadwater

This large estuarine complex is a legendary location for quality sand whiting which can be taken anytime of the year.

Porpoise Point

One of the best fishing spots for large whiting throughout the year. It also provides quality bream during winter from the shore or from a boat.

Carter Banks

It is considered as the most abundant spot in the Broadwater for taking large numbers of whiting. Fishing at the banks should only be during the rising tide, for it has a very strong run-off during the ebb tide.

Nerang River

Good quality of whiting can be yielded well up in the river. The Coombabah and Coomera Rivers are also good spots for whiting and bream.

Grand Hotel

The section of waters nearby the grand hotel has a number of 'depressions' which are good spots for flathead. The southern banks here are the top spot for catching yabbies for bait.

Perry Banks

An area located by a long line of concrete posts on South Stradbroke Island, is the preferred spot for boat anglers at night. Bream, whiting and flathead can be spotted on the edge of the mangroves.

Crab Island

The bream, whiting and flathead can be yielded in the surrounding shallows of the island. The local 'hot spot' for big whiting is in the northern end of the island.
