Second to none finest lake, estuary, and beach on the coast
Be prepared to be spoilt with pristine forests, unspoiled beaches, abundance of wildlife and of course the breathtaking beauty of the water and its wilderness...
This is truly a fisherman's paradise... Located near Eden, far New South Wales and before the Victorian border Wonboyn Lake lays with all its glory and with a reputation second to none for some of the finest lake, estuary, beach and land based game fishing on the coast, it will be foolish not to hook that line at this lake!
There is a good tidal flow at the lake entrance, where boats can cross the bar into Disaster Bay for some of the best blue water fishing in Australia. Alternatively, you can launch from Quarantine Bay, this is located a short drive from the highway towards Eden.
The lake itself winds for a ten kilometre course before it meets a fairly narrow channel into the sea at Disaster Bay.
Be taken aback with the great abundance of fish that call this lake home. Wonboyn Lake is renowned for its huge flathead and catches of bream, luderick, whiting, jewfish, trevally and tailor.
