I live in Brisbane and am thinking of doing a long weekend fishing trip / 4x4 trip but would like to steer clear of the crowds. Can anyone offer any suggestions (fresh water or salt water). All help appreciated.

It's not easy to get away from the crowds on long weekends, but you mite like to look at these places: Woodgate Beach, about 3.5hrs drive from Bris, just south of Bundy. Nice caravan park, and also the national park has a good camping area, but you'll need to book. Try , you mite find a link there.Good fishing too, especially if you've got a boat. Kinkuna N.P, just north of Woodgate, is extremely quiet, but you mite see a few people on a long weekend, the downside being no facilities. The dams around Brisbane get very busy, but Cressbrook Dam, north of Toowoomba, is usually a bit quieter. Excellent facilities, good fishing if you've got a boat, but you will need a liscence. Other places you could try are the four wheel drive parks, which usually have somehting on to keep you interested, but don't get ridiculously crowded. Best of luck, and enjoy yourself.

I went to Kinkuna 2 weeks ago and as you mention, a beautiful place, great camping( especially at the northern end of the park ), good fishing and no one to be seen. We were there for four days and did not see anyone. I'm told the northern end is owned by some mining co and no fees apply. It is best to come in from the Coonar beach end as you only have about three k's of sand whereas the Woodgat end is about 20k of it. No facilities are available so you have to take everything. Nearest shop is probably 35k away. Great place but a good drive from Bris.

Hop on a plane and come over to the South Island of NZ. I'll take you fly fishing for trout in the mountains. Can't beat it!
