FISHING CLOSE TO NAMBOUR
Locals fish in their favourite spots & amateurs enjoy the fresh air & relaxation on the water. Even without a boat, there’s all sorts of great fishing spots to be found. If you enjoy rock fishing try Point Cartwright, Alexandra Headland, Maroochydore, or along the Spit at Mooloolaba Bar. Take care & be fully aware of the tide & swell conditions. More sedately, you can fish along the edge of the Maroochy River, from Cotton Tree continuing along Bradman Avenue (where you can put your boat in if you have one).
Try your luck on the walking bridge across the river to Chambers Island, a great little spot for fishing & swimming. Fish off the banks, or hire a tinny & take to the river. For the more adventurous, charter operators offer day & overnight trips offshore fishing along the reefs where marlin are a favourite for sport fishing.
