Fraser Island

After tourism, recreational fishing is probably the most important activity on the island.

Fraser Islands Seventy Five Mile Beach is one of the world best beaches fishing in the world. All year round many anglers go to Fraser just for fishing along the beach. According to some people the best fishing season is in winter from June to September and it is not unusual to see dozens of people at the same time in one single area of beach.

During our trip to the island we saw several groups of people genuinely trying their luck but we also spotted some that were more in chatting mood than any other thing.

Remember what I said about the Portuguese fisherman in here? So, I guess the three guys on todays posting look pretty much the same as in Portugal, the only difference being that they may be talking about the latest 4WD model they bought instead of football. Ah, the drinks are different too, certainly beer and no wine!
