East Point Rocks

A perfect scenic location and fishing spot, the East Point Rocks are great for fishing. It’s important to know that this area is a marine sanctuary, so you can only fish with rod and reel or handline. Fish under 30cm long must be released.


Buffalo Creek

This is a really popular spot for snagging barramundi. You can grab some snacks and bait at the nearby kiosk and settle in by the creek for a peaceful fishing experience.


Nightcliff Jetty

If you enjoy fishing in a picturesque location, you can’t pass up the Nightcliff Jetty. With views of the red sandstone cliffs and Beagle Gulf, you won’t even be mad if you don’t land a catch.


Rapid Creek Footbridge

Fish flock to this location as the nutrients from the mangroves provide marine life with a feast. This location also has a wheelchair-friendly fishing platform, perfect at a medium to high tide.
