Welcome to Rockhampton for the Fitzroy River Barra Bash.
This is the second staging of this event, as anglers target trophy Barramundi and King Threadfin Salmon on the spectacular Fitzroy River.
The Queensland Government supports the Fitzroy River Barra Bash and other key events because of the $800 million they contribute to our economy. Regional events mean regional tourism jobs – which are only created because you and thousands of other people have turned up to explore.
Congratulations to the Frenchville Sports Club for organising the event and I encourage visitors to ensure they allow time to explore the diverse and unique tourism experiences of the Capricorn region while here.

With a catchment covering 142,665 square kilometers (55,083 sq mi), the Fitzroy River is the largest river catchment flowing to the eastern coast of Australia.
Named by European colonial settlers and pastoralists, Charles and William Archer, on 4 May 1853 in honour of Sir Charles FitzRoy (the Governor of the Colony of New South Wales at the time), the river is famous for housing the most diverse range of freshwater fish in Australia, including the prized Australian Barramundi.
Most often utilised as a recreation spot by locals and visitors alike; the Fitzroy River offers the perfect setting for a range of activities. From sunset picnics and insta-perfect photo moments to dragon boat racing, rowing and of course fishing, this beautiful natural landscape is where we will meet you!
With sold-out 2018 and 2019 events, 2020 will fill fast!
Book your team today and make sure you are on the water with us in May for the Fitzroy River Barra Bash.
