Great Baralaba Saratoga Classic

September 11 - September 12


Now in its 16th year and touted as one of Queensland’s top inland fishing competitions, the Great Baralaba Saratoga Classic falls on the second weekend in September. Attracting 300 plus participants, aged from four years and up, and with rich prizes up for grabs, there’s no shortage of willing challengers. It’s all friendly rivalry though, and a great excuse for family fun with live entertainment until midnight, markets (free to stall vendors), and festival fare provided by the local P&C.

Weigh-in is strictly by 12:00 noon each day and a mobile weigh-in service is being offered so contestants who don’t want to leave their post, can weigh-in without having to move.

The Baralaba Recreation & Fish Stocking group tops up fish supplies with about 60,000 fingerlings each year.
