27 – 28 October 2018 -
Usually held five days before the full moon in October, Biloela’s Callide Family Fishing Classic is all about the Barra. Pulling a 90 centimetre beauty has set the record and got everyone excited for what’s to come. It’s a ‘drag ‘em out’ tussle that’s on for young and old, to see who’ll crack the metre at this year’s turn out. About 400 fishing fans join the throng, so all-weekend action is guaranteed. Saturday night the mood continues with live music, raffle draws and food, cold beers and drinks.
There’s free onsite camping for everyone and thanks to the Banana Shire Council, new amenities make this venue top draw.
The Callide Valley Stocking Association has re-stocked the weir, year in and year out since 1987.
