Offshore Fishing

    Few places in Australia offer such immediate access to good offshore fishing grounds. Within minutes of leaving the dock you're out the heads - no bar to worry about.
    If you feel like a break you can run back into a protected bay for lunch and then go straight back out again.

Calm Water Fishing

You can plan your fishing trip a long time in advance because no matter what the weather is doing you can find a good place to fish.
If it's blowing hard when you arrive, you can fish the Hawkesbury River or Cowan waters and if the weather is fine you can move offshore in a matter of minutes - and escape back into protected waters should the weather take a turn for the worse.
