The Wide Bay Region

Wide Bay Wild Catch draws it's name from the geographical area known as Wide Bay - a unique location of deep ocean and the sheltered estuarine waterways that extends from Double Island Point north of Noosa to Bundaberg  on the banks of the Burnett River. The region has significant cultural values with World Heritage listed Fraser Island (K’gari), the RAMSAR listed Great Sandy Strait and the Great Sandy Marine Park within the boundaries. The Butchulla people  are the Traditional Owners and Native Title holders of K’gari and continue to hold strong links with the land and sea  region including the waters surrounding World Heritage listed  Fraser Island and the Great Sandy Strait. Gympie, Maryborough, Hervey Bay and Bundaberg are the major cities and are easily accessed by road, rail and air for the non boating traveller.
