“Fish and Forget”

Fishability QLD is a peer and volunteer 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. Fishability QLD has a ZERO violence policy. Please refrain from threats and violence at all times. We are here to care.

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.
