Family Fishing Carnivals

Dates: – usually held in July, October & August

The Sussex Inlet Annual Family Fishing Carnival is a fishing competition in which all the family can participate, with over AUD25,000 in valuable prizes including cash to be won. The emphasis is on children enjoying the joys of fishing in a family atmosphere.

Competitors can fish from the river bank, a boat, inside the basin or out in the ocean or off the rocks. This event is the longest running event of its type in Australia.

On the weekend prior to the carnival, there is the Fishing Carnival Bream Classic, an event where top bream anglers gather to compete for cash prizes.

A presentation night is held on the night after the competition finishes.

The carnival is sponsored by local businesses of Sussex Inlet and the Shoalhaven City Council Tourism Board.
