We have wonderful beaches, headlands and Estuaries like Corio Bay and Cooroman Creek to fish.
Our main launching boat spot is the Rosslyn Bay Marina which has two launching ramps capable of 4 boats each.
At extreme low tides, depth at the bottom of the ramp, can be a challenge for boats larger than 6m.
It has Australian Volunterr Coast Guard, QF11 Flotilla, with an active Supporter's Club charging less than $100 pa for free tows home should they be needed.
It offers 24 hr service over the weekends.

This is the extreme southern end of the Great Barrier Reef and the Keppel Island group named by Captain Cook on his exploratory journey through this area in 1770, and is my mainstay for saltwater fishing.
A nicely detailed map of Great Keppel Island is here. It needs our interest and care more than ever now!
The mighty Fitzroy River, near Rockhampton, with the second largest catchment of any river in Australia, provides good crabbing (for Queensland Mudcrab) and fishing (for Barramundi) are some of the piscatorial attractions for locals and tourists alike.
