Barra Bash is back in 2019!

The Barra Bash is back!


The BARRA BASH is back is 2019 thanks to the Frenchville Sports Club!

Frenchville Sports Club is one of Central Queensland’s largest and most well-known community Clubs. With a long, extensive and proud history of promoting sporting and leisure activities throughout the community.

Frenchville Sports Club acknowledges the opportunity exists with the new Net Free Zones within the Fitzroy River and will now help create an event that looks to create increased tourism for the region and encourages the community to participate in fishing and uphold a sustainable fishing format.

In 2018 the Frenchville Sports Club launched it’s inaugural Barra Bash Fishing Competition right here on the Fitzroy River. The 2018 Barra Bash saw 46 teams hit the waters of the Fitzroy River using lures to catch both Barramundi and King Threadfin Salmon. And after a sold-out 2018 competition, we are back bigger and better in 2019 - we look forward to another sold-out event filled with sunshine, fun and some big catches!

* Please note that the Frenchville Sports Club Barra Bash supports the Rockhampton Recreational Fishing Code of Practice.
