Sussex Inlet Annual Family Fishing Carnival
Friday 5 July to Thursday 11 July 2013
The Sussex Inlet Annual Family Fishing Carnival is a fishing competition in which all the family can participate in, with over AUD30,000 in valuable prizes including cash to be won. The emphasis is on children enjoying the joys of fishing in a family atmosphere.
Competitors can fish from the river bank, a boat, inside the basin or out in the ocean or off the rocks. This event is the longest running event of its type in Australia, 2013 will be the 58th year that this Carnival has been held.
On the weekend prior to the Carnival, there is the Fishing Carnival Bream Classic, an event where top bream anglers gather to compete for cash prizes. The Carnival is sponsored by local business houses of Sussex Inlet and the Shoalhaven City Council Tourism Board.
A presentation night is held on the night after the competition finishes.
