Fishing and boating

Line fishing is popular in Booderee National Park waters and there are many species to look out for and perhaps catch for a barbecue dinner - Australian salmon, flathead, groper, mackerel. As Booderee is a national park some restrictions apply - all aquatic invertebrates and species on rock platforms are protected so please bring bait with you. You will also need a NSW fishing license. Find out more about licenses and size and bag limits.

Spear fishing is prohibited and spears or spear guns are not allowed in the park.

Booderee National Park now has a brand new wharf at Murray's Beach. The park has invested nearly $750,000 to design and construct the wharf, which provides safer and improved access to the waters off Booderee. The new wharf offers increased tie-up space, to accommodate more boats than before.

Please be aware - This area can be exposed and more difficult to use in strong westerly winds - please check weather details thoroughly before launching your vessel for the day.
