FREE Fishing session catering for those living with a Disability,
facilitated by qualified Fishcare staff & volunteers.

These FishAbility sessions are part of an inclusive program FREE to Victorians living with a disability.

We aim to fish the St Helens Jetty or nearby rockwall area, and will have gear & banner visible to indicate our position (please see map).

Designed specifically to cater for all levels of ability, this accessible Fishing Event seeks to promote time in nature, social interaction, rehabilitation, & fun via Fishing.

Supported by our Fishcare Victoria staff and volunteers, all fishing gear & bait is provided for use, including adaptive options to suit specific physical needs.

We do request that support workers/carers accompany all participants, and play an active role in the overall well-being of the individual throughout the session – please indicate any specific needs in your booking details. Carers are NOT required to book a ticket for themselves.

ALL participants are covered under our Group Fishing Licence.
