Hi Richard

Gladstone. I think there is a honor box as you go in.

Hi richard, I haven't boated there but did have a look a couple of years ago. It sits just north of the bottom of Gladstone Bay.

It's got a jetty and looks ideal for whiting. It's in the lee of Kopke Point so unless the southerlies are howling, I'd guess it would be great tinny country.

Cheers.

No worries Richard... but.... I looked for a photo (pre digital era) of the jetty, and I'm not sure it's now extant??? Certanly my photo isn't.

In any case, If I had a tinny on the way up to the barra, I'd still be banking on the whiting.

($38/kilo for Sandy Whiting fillets at Leederville Kailis last weekend - would you believe it!). But.. they are sensational I must admit.

You can get a tinnies and larger boats in at Gladstone. It can be very shallow and your car will get wet. There will be other people fishing when your there. Most travel a fair way across the bay to get their catch. The jetty is in ruins. The drop toilets have one of the best views in the West.

As for me, I regularly swing by for the night. Ive never felt inclined to drop the boat in the water. Just light a fire and watch the sunset from the dunny.

Richard

About 50 ks south of Carnarvon is a spot called Bush Beach. Free camping as far as I know, long stretches of coastline, some mangrove sections and good fishing. A few crabs too.

Easy access, solid ground for vans etc.

Easy drive into Carnarvon and back for restocking supplies.

Take a look at it on google earth.

Just make sure you do it between April - October or you will get blown away by the prevailing 'sea breezes' at other times.

Winds can get up to around 30 -40 knots sometimes.
