Land based fishing provides the ideal way to unwind and enjoy an amazing sunset. A very popular pastime with locals and tourists alike, there is a large variety of species which can be caught right off the shore.

Boasting a wide variety of fishing locations, Geraldton offers both ocean and river fishing opportunities. The Greenough Rivermouth is particularly popular for a variety of species, including; bream, mulloway, flat head, tailor and herring.

To enjoy ocean land based fishing, get down to Point Moore and Separation Point, both ideal locations to catch whiting and herring, whilst the Batavia Coast Marina and the Fishermen's Wharf are popular spots for bream.

If you feel a little more adventurous, why not try your luck offshore either along our coastline or a day trip to the Abrolhos Islands.  There is even a chance to go on a Cray Fishing Tour with an experienced Charter company.
