MACKAY TOURISM IS LAUNCHING TWO NEW FISHING GUIDES

Mackay Tourism is excited to officially launch two new fishing guides to the public, promoting fishing across Central Queensland and encouraging visitation to the region.


The Fish Queensland 4Dams and Central Queensland Fishing Guides were created thanks to government funding and showcase the fishing hotspots our region has to offer.

The Central Queensland Fishing Guide was a product of the CQ Bushfires Flexible Funding Grant, applied for by Mackay Tourism following the Eungella bushfires in 2018.

It was identified that there was no overall promotion, brochure or website that showcased all the fishing available in Central Queensland and through collaboration with Banana, Rockhampton, Mackay, Isaac, Central Highlands and Isaac councils, this brochure was produced.

The concept was to develop brochures and a website (promoted at leisure shows and on social media) to highlight the fishing spots in the area and to attract visitors who will then spend money in Central Queensland.

The 4Dams Fishing Guide was created thanks to the FNQ and NQ Monsoon Trough Flexible Funding Grant and covers Eungella, Teemburra, Kinchant and Peter Faust Dams.
