Baffle Creek Family Fishing Festival is held by the Baffle Creek Community Inc. The grounds come to life with bush-style entertainment, festivities and fun for all walks and ages, while the recreational fishers amongst us take to the fantastic waters around Baffle Creek vying for great prizes! In 2017 the competition became purely ‘Catch, Snap & Release’. Our fish stocks and the health of our river systems are important to us. Although, you are welcome to take one home for dinner!
The festival offers families and friends the opportunity to put the stresses of modern life aside to enjoy a few days with their favourite people in a truly beautiful natural environment, while providing two significant benefits to the Baffle Creek Community: a means of showcasing the magic and lifestyle of Baffle Creek to the outside world – this positive exposure is integral to nurturing opportunities for local eco-sustainable industries (eg ecotourism and fresh food production) to seed, grow and employ, and secondly, raises funds needed to maintain the Baffle Creek Community Centre – an essential facility utilised by many for sporting, educational, social, health and community care activities.
