The Rocky Barra Bounty is a popular fishing competition in Rockhampton that is held annually. It’s a tag and release event and it can accommodate about 70 teams, and 130 competitors.
The competition takes place in the newly created commercial net free fishing zone which covers the Fitzroy River, Keppel Bay and the waters north of Yeppoon.
A great place for competitors to stay is Quest Rockhampton Apartments. They offer self-contained studio accommodation, as well as one and two bedroom apartments. Quest is right in the CBD and best of all, it serves up fantastic views of the Fitzroy River.
