Fishability QLD has witnessed, first-hand, individuals sustaining tenancies, improving health and well-being, by feeling connected to community and being involved with a group who cares for them. Our motto is “Fish and forget”. Fishability QLD is now offering fishing packages every Wednesday and Friday at Bribie Island. We also consider private bookings upon request.
Fishability QLD is dedicated to breaking down the barriers of social isolation and supporting people to thrive. Skills and capacity building, social inclusion, health and wellbeing, community access & support and outdoor fun.
“Fish and Forget”
Fishability QLD is a peer driven organisation. We support our participants to drive and run their own groups. We support you to drive your own boat and develop your marine safety and fish handling skills.
In this environment there are many opportunities to develop and build on skills and confidence. Outdoor recreation, pathways to employment, health and wellbeing, physical exercise, nature and water, lots of laughter and oh….yeah fishing! We love to fish together.
