Rainbow beach sports club annual fishing classic

The Rainbow Beach Family Fishing Classic has been operating for 38 years bringing community, business and visitors together. Our event encourages mate-ship and positive mental health outcomes via the sport of fishing. The event runs for 7 days offering many opportunities for fishers with 4 nights focusing on minority groups to encourage participation: Seniors, Ladies, Teens, Juniors and Team.

Rainbow Beach Sports Club provides the venue, facilities and staff for the event. We envision 500 adult and 80 teen and junior competitors (figure based on previous years). Our community provided more than 400 volunteer hours in pre-event preparation, during the event and post event.
