Event Details

The Weipa Fishing Classic is held every year for three days of non-stop fishing action. It is Cape York’s premier and most exciting fishing competition. Local and interstate anglers compete for a record prize pool of more than $100,000 up for grabs.

And that’s just in the water – throw in activities for the kids, casting competitions, tug of war showdowns, live entertainment, dance groups, community displays, exhibits, food, drinks and you have got three days of non-stop fun for all the family!

Whether you’re a mad keen angler or just want to enjoy the weekend the WFC has something for everyone – everyone has a chance of winning a prize.

The Classic is the Cape York’s largest community event with approximately $150,000 given back to our community.

Each year, business and community groups embrace the event by sponsoring, volunteering or getting in the various activities, stalls and exhibits. The annual Fishing Classic is a great opportunity for local community and sporting groups to raise much-needed funds.
