Great Baralaba Saratoga Classic

September 9 - September 10

2nd weekend in September

Now in its 17th year and touted as one of Queensland’s top inland fishing competitions, the 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 this year, organisers are offering a new mobile weight-in service 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.

Camping at the Neville Hewitt Weir is available but works on a first in , best dressed basis.  Sites are limited.
