Reviewer: Chris Scurfield

Quick comment: Very family-friendly region, with fantastic fishing in the creeks for bass and barra, through to tuna, GTs and marlin in the bluewater. Tides, currents and winds should be looked at closely each day, as there are a number of sandbars and shallow reefs throughout the area.
