Fishing And Tent Camping

Recommended Posts

Hi Raiders

Can I get some suggestions where I can take my 17yo non-fishing son tent camping and fishing for a couple of days with no boat.

I live in sydney don't want a long drive. Prefer light soft plastic fishing.

Thanks in advance

Crash.

Anywhere between Nowra and Jervis Bay would be ideal.

Id stay at Huskisson or Greenpatch in the JB national park.

Plenty of fishing/non fishing things to do if you went down there.

The Basin, its along Pittwater. Only annoying thing is, you'll need to lug all your gear via the ferry as theres no direct road access. The ferry departs from palm beach. You can drive but its a long walk. You can flick plastics along the beach.

Hi Crashlee, I did a fair amount of camping and fishing with my sons in the seventies and eighties and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Hawkesbury river section anywhere along the ferry road between Wiseman's and Gunderman which is an easy place to fish and drive home from especially at holiday time i.e you only have to go back on the ferry and drive along Baulkam Hills Road and head home from there... You can either set up at the waters edge and keep moving along Wiseman's ferry road if necessary or drive in behind the restaurant shop at Gunderman and talk to the owner and if you decide to pitch a tent there for convenience, you'll find quite a few good landbased spots where you should be able to catch bait, jewfish, bream and flathead.

Cheers

Thanks for all your suggestions. Huskinson is front running at the moment. I hope I can give you a fishing report soon.

Cheers

Ulladulla, Lake Conjola, Tabourie are nice and there are heaps of accomodation/camping options, fishing, snorkelling and surf options if your son surfs or swims. You're looking at about 2 and a half hours from your place.

Anywhere on the Central Coast is nice... lots of fishing opportunities, nice waterways, beaches, beer is cold and presents perfect father son bonding opportunities!
