Interstate regulations

Other states and territories may not necessarily have the same recreational fishing rules as Queensland. In some cases, different rules even apply on opposite sides of a river.

Different rules may include the need to buy a recreational fishing licence, different size and possession limits, and certain area or seasonal closures.

Wherever you are fishing, you should make sure that you are aware of the rules that apply. Not only will this ensure that you are not risking a fine, but it will also help protect Australia's valuable fisheries resources.

You can find out more about recreational fishing rules for other states or territories through their fisheries websites:
