You may have noticed that fishing is a prominent activity at Lake Tinaroo. In fact, this lake is regarded as the best Barramundi fishing in the world. The barra here cannot breed because the water is only fresh. (Barramundi need a salt and fresh water environment to breed) Therefore, the lake is stocked annually with baby barra that grow into monsters bigger than anywhere else in the world. The world’s biggest barra’s have been caught here by keen anglers – visit the local store and see all the photos on the wall of proud fishers wrestling with their fish that are bigger than their boats.
But aside from fishing, Tinaroo is wonderful for family activities like picnics on the bank.
