Great Baralaba Saratoga Classic

September 8 - September 9

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 each year. 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.
