Kurrimine Beach is FISHING PARADISE!

The warm tropical waters of Kurrimine Beach are currently teeming with fish of every variety, from Flathead and Whiting that the kids love to catch on the beach, and the kaleidoscope of brutish pelagic fish, to the Barramundi that keen fisherman wrestle in Maria and Liverpool Creeks. Without a doubt perhaps the most common species and of course arguably the hardest fighting are the Mackerel caught at the Patches and Silver Sands just a few kilometres offshore.

Kurrimine Beach is unique for its family friendly nature which incorporates superb beach fishing with easy access to local estuary systems. The close proximity of King Reef is a bonus for mums and dads that relish the opportunity of chasing prized reef fish just a few hundred meters from the beach. Naturally the more serious anglers have paradise within easy reach, as Ellison, Eddy, and Adelaide reefs are just a short run offshore and have produced some world class catches of all the common tropical coral reef fin fish species. Old salts in their car toppers do not miss out at Kurrimine Beach with the Feeding Grounds, Silver Sands and the Patches just minutes away beyond Stephen’s Island.

The Mackerel season at Kurrimine Beach is undoubtedly yet another highlight on the fishing calendar and provides the magical inspiration for many a young angler to get hooked on fishing for life.

The pristine waters of King Reef just 100m offshore is a diver’s playground in shallow water with notable bommie hotspots, where the diver can selectively target prized table eating reef fish species, including the Coral Trout and Tropical Crayfish.

Kurrimine Beach offers some of the most amazing fishing and diving opportunities anywhere on the East Coast of Australia.
