There are many activities at Groper Creek but the main activity is Fishing, and of course preparing and eating the finest fresh seafood Queensland has to offer, including prawns, mud crabs and fine table fish like Barramundi, King Salmon and Mangrove Jack amongst others...
Groper Creek is famous for fishing! It was named after it...but is Groper spelt "Groper" or "Grouper"? All that's really missing is U - so YOU will have to come and check us out! Groper Creek has great land based fishing directly in front of the camping grounds on the rocky banks, or on the very popular jetty, which is perfect for family fishing and night fishing. For the boat fisherman Groper Creek is a very large estuary system of the mighty Burdekin River, which you will need weeks to explore and even more time to fish!
Wildlife watchings - birds
Groper Creek has an abundance of wildlife, especially many breeds of birds.
Great daily excercise with good scenery and endless roads. Be careful you don't get lost or wander on to someones private property!
Do not forget your crab pots when you come to Groper Creek! You are almost guaranteed to get a feed of crabs while you set a line. Not a bad bonus at the end of the day.
Groper Creek is a large estuary system with many mangrove lined creeks and gutways that not only hold good fish, but at certain times of the year hold large quantities of good sized prawns. The smaller prawns make for great fishing bait but keep the larger prawns on ice as they taste fantastic. So make sure you bring a good quality cast net as there is nothing better than a nice feed of fresh Groper Creek prawns.
Groper Creek runs off the mighty Burdekin River and is a very large system of mangrove lined creeks and bays. There is beautiful scenery with spectacular wildlife all around. Make sure you take care on the water and respect other boaties. And also remember to be crocwise.
Groper Creek Caravan Park is surrounded by a very small friendly community which makes it very quiet and laid back. There's no noise except for the wind, wildlife and water lapping on the shore.
