Welcome to the Tableland Hardware Tinaroo Barra Bash
Tinaroo is well known amongst fisherman for its Monster Barra, it currently holds 19 World Records (as of March 2017) making it the perfect setting for this popular weekend event.
The “Barra Bash” as it is commonly called amongst locals began in 1994 and was used as one of two fishing monitoring tools by the Tableland Fish Stocking Society. The main aim was to monitor fish size and survival for the TFSS. These findings were then reported back to the government who provide fish stocking funding through the Stocked Impoundment Permit scheme (SIPS) .
In 2016, the Tinaroo Barra Bash changed its format to a Catch and Release Tournament!
This event is run by a team of volunteers from the Tableland Fish Stocking Society, a not for profit society. We rely heavily on sponsorship from local businesses to make this event possible. We ask you to please support these businesses wherever you can!
Funds raised at this event are used to purchase and raise Barramundi for restocking and to maintain the Barrier Net, which is used in times of high rainfall as it provides a guard from losing fish
over the dam’s wall.
