Where am I allowed to fish?

Recreational fishing is allowed in all zones in Australian Marine Parks, except Sanctuary Zones and National Park Zones, which are “no-take”.A permit is required to fish recreationally in the Recreational Use Zone at Elizabeth Reef (Lord Howe Island). When you are in a zone where fishing isn’t allowed, you’ll need to stow and secure your fishing gear.

Check the maps section of this app for details of where parks are located.

For further information about the zones and rules in each marine park, check the factsheets available at the marine parks website on each network.
