Fishing

Australian bass are a targeted species in freshwater impoundments.  They are an aggressive fish and they strike hard, which equates to plenty of fun for the angler.  Sports Tuition offers a fantastic service which includes; the use of boats and canoes, which are all powered by Minn Kota electric motors, all fishing equipment, live shrimp for bait and fishing guide.


Sports Tuition's home base is Maroon Dam.  Hinze Dam charters can be organised, however, minimum numbers apply.

Maroon Dam is located approximately 90 minutes from Brisbane and the Gold Coast.  It is 25km south of Boonah and it is one of South East Queensland's best freshwater fly and surface fishing destinations.

One of the best fisheries on the Gold Coast is Hinze Dam.  Hinze Dam is the Gold Coast's water supply and this pristine environment is something everyone should experience. Hinze Dam is located about 15 kilometres southwest from central Nerang, which is approximately 30 minutes from Surfers Paradise. 

Sports Tuition offers ½ Day & Full Day Fishing Charters and Weekend Fishing Tours.  Weekend Tours have participants accommodated overnight in cabin accommodation.   For all weekend tours, participants have the opportunity to learn how to fillet the fish and prepare it for dinner.  Packages may consist entirely of fishing time on the water or a combination of fishing with workshops on knots & rigs, soft plastics, lures, fish filleting and learning the art of fly-casting.

Adventure packages are also available which include the fishing with an option to also include abseiling, canoeing, milk crate climb and archery.
