Welcome to Fishin’ for Freedom
The smell of the salt water, the feel of the ocean breeze blowing on your face. Sitting with a rod in your hand waiting for the bite.
Before you realise, you have dropped your guard, absorbing the relaxing environment around you and sharing with your mates.
Fishing is a non-threatening environment that allows you to escape from life’s’ day to day challenges and gives you the chance to relax, renew and refresh for the following week.
We realise how important it is to have an outlet to let go of life’s difficulties but sometimes it’s not that easy if you have no one to go with or access things you want to do.
Fishin’ for Freedom was established to provide that outlet for participants that want to go fishing but either don’t have the gear, a friend to go with or the knowhow but want to learn. We can provide people that have skills in fishing and that live and breathe fishing and that are just looking for that next reason to go.
We can facilitate fishing activities from Jetty’s, banks, fishing farms, of a beach, rivers, dams or charter.
Our fishing activities are to support:
- People with a disability
- ADF members (ex & current) that have acquired a physical injury or PTSD while on duty and their families.
- Police, Fire & Ambulance staff (ex & current) that have acquired a physical injury or PTSD while on duty.
Fishin’ for Freedom’s mission statement
To enhance the quality of health & well-being for our participants by providing affordable fishing activities and events, education, support to connect with the community and friendship over a common interest, fishing.
