Fishing & Camping
There's nothing like camping by an open fire with breathtaking starry nights under the Milky Way. The fragrance of fresh fish frying and afternoon bird calls is something quite special. There are many fishing and camping reserves, or you can contact one of the private camping providers for small or large group camping. Some camping areas have limited facilities or no facilities and focus on a truly bush camping experience. Plan accordingly and you will have a great stay.
The waterways in the region boast some of the best inland fishing in Australia. Murray Cod and Yellow Belly are caught in town reaches of the Macintyre River and Coolmunda Dam. Local fishing clubs are continually re-stocking the rivers and Dam to ensure plenty of fish for locals and visitors alike. As at 19 January 2015 Coolmunda Dam level was 39.2%, with a volume of 26,956ML. Contact Lake Coolmunda Caravan Park on 07 4652 4171 for any camping enquiries.
