Toorbul Beach


On a quiet stretch of beach along the pristine Pumicestone Passage, Toorbul Beach near Brisbane is a picturesque fishing location that somehow remains a well-kept secret.

The only noises are the splash of small waves lapping the beach, calls from the huge variety of resident and migratory sea birds, for which Toorbul is famous.

If fishing is your main motive for your Toorbul visit, a boat isn’t vital for success. Daily, folks throw their line in from the boat ramp and take home a decent catch of flathead and whiting during high tide.

Bream and Tailor also swim the channel between Toorbul and Bribie but a small boat is your best bet for this catch and remember bait is plentiful along the water’s edge.
