Fishing on Land

Throughout the region there is plenty of land based options that provide great fishing. Groper Creek has a jetty which makes it a perfect place to wet a line or throw out a cast net for prawns. Lynch’s Beach at Alva is the place to go fishing for flathead, whiting, grunter, salmon and barramundi. Wunjunga Beach (Beachmount), is a fisherman’s paradise. Access by four-wheel drive vehicle or by foot can be found at access points along Wunjunga Road and at the end of the Wunjunga township. The Burdekin River is known to deliver good numbers of barramundi among other species depending on whether you are fishing in the fresh or salt water part of the river. There are several entry points to the Burdekin River on both Ayr and Home Hill sides.
