The Manning Valley is a fisherman’s paradise, with a place to drop a line or experience adventure fishing around every corner.

Fish our numerous, pristine freshwater streams for Australian Bass (perch) or our estuaries for quality flathead, bream and whiting.

Land based game fishermen, who love the thrill of the chase, are invited to take advantage of our uncrowded beaches and headlands. Or those who prefer to pursue the big blue water species such as snapper, jewfish or marlin, we have numerous boat launching facilities throughout the region.

Pick up a fishing license at the Manning Valley Visitor Information Centre or selected local outlets.
