My self and a mate are looking at doing a non yak fishing trip, we are wanting to target barra and was wondering how far south are they common?
This will just be a weekend trip so going way far north isn't really an option.
I live in Brisbane and he lives on the sunny coast, any rough ideas would be great.

Sunshine Coast Barra Park?

They have been catching them over summer in the Maroochy River canals I believe. They also get them regularly in the Noosa River, I saw photos of one caught this week.

I don't think these spots would be considered as reliable as up north though.

Bundy would be the most southern place they're consistently caught. The Boyne River in Gladtone has fished well since Awoonga overflowed during the floods. Lake Lenthall's at Gympie is stocked with barra and is a bit closer to home.

Lenthalls Dam is a long way from Gympie about 20km North of Maryborough and then left another 15km, hardly any barra in there now cold weather each year claims most of them and after the floods most of the leftover ones were washed over.
