Grand Strzelecki Track


Come and stand in awe under forest giants, or step into a lost world of ancient temperate rainforest equal to any on Earth, yet not hear a sound except the serenade of lyrebirds. Come and walk in solitude through a different rainforest so rare, most people have never heard of it, and far fewer will ever see it.

Come and discover peaceful, beautiful places far from the beaten track and away from the parks all the tourists visit. When you need to reacquaint yourself with the comforts of life, try a home cooked meal in a friendly country guest house or a cosy cabin in a tiny, peaceful hamlet amidst all this natural beauty.

It is all part of the State Government's Target One Million plan to grow participation and get one million anglers by 2020.

Learn to cast, how to tie knots and what to do with a fish when you catch one. Get the opportunity to release fish into the waters too.

Free fishing tuition will be provided by volunteers from angling clubs and Fishcare.

Clinics will commence at 10:00am and midday, and there will be lots to do for the whole family, including a free photo booth to immortalize that fish of a lifetime.

Parental supervision is essential and participants should bring sturdy footwear, clothing to suit the weather, a hat and sunscreen, and a sense of fun and adventure because they are going to be wonderful days.

Come along and join Vic Fish Kids Ambassador Rex Hunt, who will attend each event and inspire young and old with expert tips and entertaining tales.
