Pack the fishing rods for this spot
Pack the rods and head for Rooney Point off Fraser Island (known as Rooneys by Fraser Coast locals) at the very tip of our chartering area in the Great Sandy Strait. Rooney Point is completely secluded and a must to add to your sailing holiday itinerary if you’re chartering for 3 nights or more.
This area of Fraser Island is only accessible by boat (not via 4WD on land), so you’ll get an amazing sunset view all to yourself and in the winter months you may even be treated to watching the humpbacks enter platypus bay or hear their whalesong through the hull of the boat at night (magic!)
However, the biggest drawcard of Rooney’s is its world-class fishing conditions. Fraser Coast locals will often head straight for Rooney’s to get hooked on the famous Black Marlin along with other species such as Cod, Emperor, Sweetlip and much more.
