OK time for some informationDates
They have a triathlon on from 14 - 17 Feb and the woman from the place i investigated strongly urged against coming on that weekend (place is packed and the accom is more expensive). This leaves the weekends of the 9th and 10th or 23rd and 24th of February. the prices for these 2 periods are below. I think we need some discussion as to which series of dates is better.Accommodation
It seems SWR is a very difficult place to get accommodation and a number of places i called seemed to be totally booked for weekends from the start of January until Easter (end of March).
I found a place (happens to be one of the ones Davey G put in the other post) that have availability and the facilities sound similar to those down at the Barlings Beachhttp://www.trialbay.com.au
The location of the place is in the attached linkhttp://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=q&hl=e ... &z=14&om=1
At the moment they have accommodation in the form of cabins and powered camping sites and have a communal camping kitchen similar to Barlings. They even offered if there was a big group they could organise a pasta night or similar one evening for us in their Cafe.Prices
Information is al follows:
Powered campsite - $28 per night (for 2 people) and $14 for every extra additional person on that site
Cabins - $120 per night (for 2 people) and $20 for every additional person in cabinDeposits
They require $50 to hold a camp site and the first night cabin fee to hold a cabin.Timing of bookings
The woman was very helpful in indicating that at about October the bookings start coming in thick and fast for the following year so if we are organising a big group we may want to try and book it before then.Fish Species
We all know i am mainly going to be trying to get myself a marlin PB but there are a multitude of other species both estuary and offshore available at that time of year.
Some information relating to the pelagic species can be found at this website http://www.sportsfish.com.au/fishing/to ... rocks.html
In relation to chasing offshore species we will be at a distinct advantage because we will not be required to deal with the bar or the boat ramp which i believe caters some very cranky ramp ragers at this time of year. I would expect us to be able to make a launch from the surf and head out towards the Jail.
I am sure more information will come to light as this thread continues
I know there are a few AKFFers that live up that way and perhaps they could offer some more insight into the area and what it has to offer.
