Game On Adventures’ guided freshwater fishing safaris are offered in various locations ranging from Northern New South Wales to the Sunshine Coast. Our fishing expeditions primarily target the Australian Bass, however other brackish and freshwater species are possible (i.e. Saratoga, Cod & Perch).
We offer both land based (hike and cast) and calm water fishing tours using our custom 4 metre Quintrex Trophy Explorer aluminium Bass boat and expedition style Canadian canoes powered by electric motors. Our fishing guides specialise in offering clients unique fishing experiences in hard to reach places not subjected to heavy fishing pressure. We cater for anglers of all levels of experience from pro-fishos to newbies looking to bag their first Bass.
Here are the details you need to know about our guided fishing safaris:
- Fully guided/catered by our expert guides
- All fishing gear and tackle is provided (we use only quality gear tested and proven by our guides)
- Mutli-day tours are accommodated in “glamping style” tents with all camping gear provided
