The televised event represents the pinnacle international sport fishing catch and release tournament and has been broadcasted in four languages into over 400 million households across Asia.

Recreational fishing is the single largest driver of tourism throughout Regional Australia, generating 28.5 million room nights and contributing $9.9 Billion into regional economies. It has been identified as Tourism Australia as the next big thing for marketing Australia, with research showing it be an area of ‘untapped tourism potential’

The Hinchinbrook Shire Council envisages the International Fishing Series will provide the catalyst to increase investment in local tourism development, including expanding the diversity and quality of local recreational fishing product. The reach of our story into Asia in conjunction with development of enhanced tourism product is likely to significantly increase current international visitation to the region
