Camps or must fish spots for someone far from home

Postby waterbaby1972 » Sat Mar 18, 2017 7:21 pm

its been a while since I've logged on and wanted to see if there were any camps you might be having late May. Have a conference in Brisbane but I've decided to drive up from the NSW far south coast and do a bit of exploring as being originally from Perth I haven't driven or explored the stretch from Port Stephens northwards.

If there's no trips planned I wondered if you might have suggestions of 'must do's' while I'm up your way. Toying with idea of going to North Stradbroke for a day or two just to see it while I'm there and maybe take in a bit of yak whale watching - though may be a tad early for big numbers of them I'm guessing - though last year they were spotting them at Hervey Bay by late April so fingers crossed.

Toying also with Forster-Tuncurry, Bellingen or Ballina but realise that's not really nearby.

Would appreciate any thoughts on your special places. Probably going to do a bit of camping so out of the way places I'm set up for too.

Cheers in advance,

Let us know if you manage to stop in Forster/Tuncurry, Jody. All going well, mainly with the weather, we should be able to have some fun! :gu:

Seal Rocks and South West Rocks are nice places to camp and fish.
Seal Rocks is a artificial lure only zone to protect the Grey Nurse Sharks and is good for snapper and kings.
