Coomera River Fishing

Option 1: Coomera River Boardwalk

The boardwalk offers a range of fishing opportunities to cast into the eddies caused by the piers of the M1 and service roads. These eddies are enjoyed by fish who are tired of fighting the current in the main river. They sit in the eddy behind the pier and just wait for their food (or a hook) to come past in the current.
