Eco huts

The Eco Fishing Huts program is a unique initiative by the NSW Government to develop wilderness fishing opportunities in national parks and other areas across the State.

DPI in partnership with the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has developed a network of Eco Fishing Huts at inland and coastal locations to provide affordable access to a range of fresh and saltwater sportfishing opportunities.

The NSW Government is committed to providing unique experiences for recreational fishers to enjoy our beautiful and productive fishing locations. Plans are already underway to expand the Eco Fishing Huts program with additional fishing accommodation options.

The Eco Fishing Huts initiative is another example of recreational fishing fees being used to enhance opportunities for fishers.
