Hone your angling skills at our waterfront parks.
Head down to the fishing grounds at one of our waterfront parks to relax while enjoying a scenic view.
Ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone by:
- Respecting one another
- Select a fishing spot that is a distance away from boats, other anglers or visitors engaged in water activities.
- Be mindful of your surroundings when casting your fishing line.
- Avoid stringing your fishing line across the path as the transparent fishing line may not be visible to others.
- Be considerate to other anglers.
- Minimising your impact on the environment
- Take note of the protected species that you must release if caught.
- Practise catch-and-release fishing. If you are not planning to eat the fish, release it back into the water as quickly as possible.
- Dispose of trash such as fishing lines, old hooks and bait into litter bins.
- Otters may be spotted. Do not harm them.
- Use only artificial bait and carbon steel micro barb or barbless hooks when fishing at reservoirs and waterways.
- You may be fined up to $3,000 if you are caught violating fishing regulations.
- Being safe and responsible
