Our Story – Fishing Family

River To Coast

My story begins growing up in a fishing family in Victoria. Moving to Tweed Heads and marrying a local quickly adjusted my fishing techniques from the cold-water catches of Victoria to the warm water fishing and hunting Mud Crab! on the Tweed and Gold Coast.

Tweed Heads is our home, we have 2 acres, which we have our fruit trees, chickens and kids all roaming free range.

Living in the Tweed Heads, Gold Coast region is a great balance between the river, Mt Warning, and the beaches. To be honest we cannot see us living anywhere else! ( May be biased because I haven’t seen all of Australia or the World)!

Cruising the Tweed

Buisness purchased 1997

We bought our business in 1997, starting out with one boat and 2 crew. We now have 3 boats, 15 staff – 15 brilliant staff, who are collective mix of locals, with different backgrounds, the Navy, Police force, Trawler fishermen, divers and even an Englishman!

Locals who genuinely want to work in one of the best offices in the region – the Tweed River!

Our Family

You will see me (Kylie) in the office giving orders (which no one listens to… Scott (hubby) can you hear me, this needs fixing now)!!

Perhaps selective hearing is worldwide between husband and wives. It’s not just a local thing? (I hope)! As I said I haven’t seen all the world!

Come and meet us – try our catch! We do have the stories about “the one that got away”, we use 95% local produce (this includes fruit from our backyard)!

We source and catch local seafood and produce, a local harvest of foods that are the best!

So, come and join our table, share our stories and yours, and enjoy your day out with us and in the beautiful Tweed.
