Riverbreeze Caravan and Cabin Park is Kui Tasmanian base camp for special connections with nature

Riverbreeze Caravan and Cabin Park in Smithton, North West Tasmania, is on the banks of the Duck River and the start of the Tarkine Wilderness Drive. The Tarkine is noted for its beauty and natural values, containing the largest area of Gondwanan cool-temperate rainforest in Australia.

The Duck River is a top Tasmania fishing place for salmon, silver trevally, large flathead, tailor and more often than not sea-run trout are found in this river although when fishing in the estuary a boat is essential. Also these fish can be found right in Smithton fishing from either the reclaimed land on the western shore or around the boat ramp on the eastern shore, fish can be caught by spinning, fly fishing or bait fishing.

From October to early April Australian salmon are readily caught either by trolling or bait fishing. With the estuary being basically two large sand flats east and west of the channel, there is great opportunity for the salt water fly fisherman. Polaroiding big flathead over the sand is a fantastic sport, these fish can also be taken with larger bib lures and bait.

The whitebait run up the Duck River is around the months of October - January. During their season, they are fairly heavily fished. With the whitebait, sea-run trout and Australian Salmon move further up into the tidal area. Small lures and flies are a good option for snagging these fish
