Kalbarri Fishing

Kalbarri fishing is highly rated as it is one of Western Australia's and Australia’s premier fishing holiday destinations.

And it is true to say that of all the northern fishing locations in WA Kalbarri is certainly the most versatile for fishing and it's also a great place to stay.

Kalbarri in fact, is the perfect spot to fish at whether you love beach fishing, charter fishing or fishing in the river off the bank or
in a Tinnie. And the fishing is also terrific from the cliffs at Kalbarri.

If you are using a tinnie as your fishing boat be a bit careful if you approach the river mouth as the breakers can be quite large and can easily tip
a small boat.

If you are looking for  a monster snapper, a super quick spanish mackeral, or a dhufish which taste great, also often caught are tuna, amberjack, yellowtail kingfish, tailor, black bream, baldchin groper or perhaps a large marlin then Kalbarri has got to be the ideal fishing spot for you to try out.

About 40 other species of fish can also be caught in Kalbarri waters. In Kalbarri the best spots to dangle a line out are the Murchison river anywhere in front of the town or try the river mouth as this is quite a hot fishing spot where many great catches are made.
