This fishing adventure takes advantage of the low tide and shows you some of Cape Hillsborough’s best tourist attractions. If you decide to take this route and camp at Smalleys Beach, definitely head to Kangaroos Beach to watch the roos feed at the water’s edge at sunrise.

However, most of this trail requires you to walk, so get your tackle bag ready and lace your boots up nice and tight. Don’t worry - once the fish start to bite, it’ll all be worth the walk. Please note: you are not guaranteed to catch a fish following this trail alone. Great fishermen know that you should also do your own research beforehand.

Dominate the Delta - The Rockhampton Delta Fishing Trail

41482 - Rockhampton QLD 4700
The Fitzroy River delta offers a variety of fish species and great scenery of the Capricorn coastline. All year, the delta makes a great fishing hotspot; in winter you’ll find blue salmon and grunter, whereas in the warmer months you’re most likely to catch barramundi, fingermark and king threadfin. Deep sea fishing off the coast offers opportunities to chase trevally, mangrove jack and cod. The river is known for mud crabs and the longer you leave your pots in, the more likely you are to catch some juicy crabs. The delta is perfect for casting or bait fishing, however it is governed by tidal changes. Strong currents occur during high tide so the best time to fish the delta is on half or outgoing tide, in good weather conditions. The Net Free Fishing Zone in Rockhampton has opened the doors to recreational fishermen. However, please note that barramundi season closes from midday November 1 to midday February 1. And the Fitzroy River is a natural habitat where seasons play a key role in your fishing success rate. You're not guaranteed to catch a fish following this trail alone.

Getting away early is easy when you're eager to explore new destinations, so there's no doubt that Brisbane will be in your rearview mirror before you can say "let's go on a road trip". However, a cautious traveller is a safe traveller, so it pays to check RACQ's updated road conditions before you leave for very remote areas like Birdsville and Innamincka. Also, ensure you pack enough food and water to last you a few days in case you get stranded outback; and an extra spare tyre won't hurt, either. Tell a few loved ones where you're going and when to expect you to arrive (don't forget to call them and let them know you got there safe and sound) so they can raise the alarm if necessary - just in case!...
