Located on the far South Coast of NSW is the quiet beachside town of Broulee; this picturesque destination, a small detour off the main tourist trail boasts easy access to estuary, beach and rock fishing. With many a tasty catch, including whiting, flathead bream, trevally, blackfish, garfish, flounder, salmon and the occasional school of mulloway, this is a must-fish location. If you’re planning on taking a trip to this hidden gem, the Ingenia Holidays Broulee takes pride position on the beach front, giving you premium access to all the great spots.
A one-hour drive from Broulee will take you to our next destination, Ingenia Holidays Lake Conjola. According to local Anglers, just dangle a line in the lake and you’ll catch as many flathead as you want! It’s a tad fishy, but even the local parks, showcase the heads of many a ginormous flathead captured in the area. A hot tip from those in the know, cast your line where the lake meets the ocean for some serious variety – with plenty of bream, whiting and jewfish.
Looking for a reason to ditch the big smoke?

Boasting the largest saltwater lake in Australia, 110sq km to be exact, what better reason do you need to pack the ol’ fishing rod and take a much-needed break? Another plus, those who stay at our lake side property can enjoy ease of access to the water from our private jetty and boat ramp.
