THIS OCTOBER (EKKA) LONG WEEKEND COME AND ENJOY A WEEKEND OF FISHING AND FAMILY FUN & ACTIVITIES AT THE
COD HOLE FISHING COMP
We are very excited to announce the return of the Cod Hole Fishing Comp coming on the EKKA Long Weekend (29-31 October 2021).
The weekend is as much about family fun, having a go, enjoying the outdoors as it is about expert fishing. The name of the game is having a go and having fun while you do it.
The event is hosted by the BIG4 Maroochy River holiday park
(the friendliest park on the coast) and supported by our fantastic new partner Anaconda (the perfect place to get your fishing, camping and holiday gear).
WE ARE BACK FOR 2021!
The Fisho Ball
On the Friday Night (29 October) we will be hosting the Fisho's Halloween Ball. A long table dinner serving a fantastic restaurant cooked meal, great live entertainment all served in our marquee. Promises to be a fantastic and fun night. Come dressed up for give-away prices.
Fishing Clinics for Big & Small Kids Alike
Spent too much time river side and caught little? Well our resident fisho Blake will be running two fishing clinics over the weekend.
