The Innisfail Game Fishing Club

We have a fun and friendly atmosphere and, even though it is a competition, we all fish and play together.

Our local meeting place is the Crown Hotel with Sean and his team. Come on in and have a Great Northern (or two), tell a yarn about the big one that got away and sample some of North Queensland’s fresh local seafood on the menu.

Join up today – The Innisfail Game Fishing Club needs you to be a financial member!
