One of the few remaining successful saltwater fishing tournaments on the eastern seaboard, the Classic has run for over 30 years in an idyllic setting with beautiful white sandy beaches, 4WD access and plenty of activities, making it a unique family and community event.
The Rainbow Beach Sports Club encourages participation from all people who would like to try, or already enjoy, the basic pleasures of salt water fishing.
Whether you are an ardent fisherman or woman or a family looking for a holiday to enjoy your favourite family recreational activity, there is something for you.
- 4 major classes of fishing – Beach, Reef, Jew and Big Fish – providing offshore, inshore and beach fishing
- major prizes based on participation rather than competitive spirit.
- sporting activities
- live entertainment
- carnival atmosphere
- lots to see and do regardless of weather conditions.
The tournament attracts upward of 650 competitors and 2018 promises much higher numbers with thousands of visitors over the (8) days.
The Rainbow Beach Sports Club and its extensive grounds continue to be used as the event’s venue and this is where most of the activities, with the exception of fishing, will be held.
