Wingan Inlet

Giant flathead caught at Wingan Inlet, Steve Cooper

Leaving Mallacoota and driving south for about 30 km along the Princes Highway, you come across the turn-off to Wingan Inlet. Little known but well worth fishing for bream and flathead, the inlet is in Croajingolong National Park and camping is permitted. The Wingan River snakes its way through the inlet, which is about 2 km long and a few hundred metres wide. It is ideal for kayak fishing and upstream in the freshwater Australian bass can be caught. Beach fishing produces salmon, tailor, yellowfin bream and gummy sharks.
