More popularly renowned for being the Whale Watch Capital of the World, Hervey Bay has become a favourite holiday destination of many holidaymakers and travellers who wish to have an amazing experience of watching these amazing creatures in action especially during the humpback breeding season.
But more than this magnificent attraction in the city, Hervey Bay is where you can enjoy other aquatic adventures such as recreational fishing and boating, to name a few. This is why many people also spend their holiday here to enjoy all these amazing activities in the city.
And because Hervey Bay has some of the most beautiful fishing spots in the world, people here have also made it a favourite pastime to go fishing. In fact, they have an annual fishing competition which gathers the whole community for a fun and friendly event.
The VMR Hervey Bay Family Fishing Competition is usually held in March every year. It is organised by the Hervey Bay Boat Club Fishing and Social Club Inc. and families battle it out to vie for the $10,000 cash prize with hundreds of prizes to win in the lucky draws and fishing prizes.
Many participants don't even fish at all but they just simply go along to enjoy the fun and friendly atmosphere at the presentations, while some delight in the food and refreshments available, or try their luck in the $5000 cash super draw or at one of the hundreds of prizes in the lucky draws or the $1000.
You can look forward to another exciting fishing competition in 2015.
