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!
Welcome to the Capricorn region for the Fitzroy River Barra Bash.
I’m pleased to welcome this event back to Rockhampton for a third year, which will see keen anglers compete for the best barramundi and threadfin salmon and a chance to win Australia's richest Barra Prize.
This event is the perfect opportunity to showcase this beautiful region, with the spectacular Fitzroy River offering the ideal backdrop for a competition like this.
The Queensland Government is proud to support the Fitzroy River Barra Bash through Tourism and Events Queensland. This event attracts visitors to the region and contributes to the local economy, creating local jobs. The event also contributes to the state’s It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar, worth $880 million to Queensland’s economy in 2020.
Congratulations to all those involved in 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.
