Freshwater Fishing, Rowing and Kayaking

Go Fishing 

Lillydale offers freshwater/sweetwater Bass fishing in our substantial dam/lake. We have a catch and release policy so that everyone has an excellent chance at catching a fish.
 
The dam is checked regularly by SE Qld Fisheries to ensure the dam is well stocked with healthy Bass and Perch. We don't guarantee that you will catch a fish but we can guarantee that there are fish in there!
 
Lillydale is located near Brisbane in the Gold Coast hinterland. Freshwater fish species in our dam include Bass and Silver Perch.
