Central Coast and Hawkesbury River recreational fishing guide


Our State's fisheries are a community-owned resource. We all have a responsibility to protect and safeguard this natural asset for present and future generations.

Fishing regulations are in place to protect and conserve our fish stocks and aquatic habitats to ensure that fishing activities remain sustainable.

The central coast district, extending from Munmorah State Recreation Park in the north, to the southern bank of the Hawkesbury River, caters for beach, rock, estuary and ocean fishing activities.

  • When do I need to pay the fee?
  • Recreational fishing closures
