Welcome to River to Reef

The South East region of Queensland has a wide range of fishing opportunities and experiences on offer. With so many choices available a local author Bill Johnston dedicated his time to writing a series of comprehensive guides to the South East corner.

The first successful installment of the series is a book covering the Sunshine Coast from the Noosa north shore down to the Pumicestone Passage. It covers all the local reefs (including gps marks), estuary guide (with aerial maps), freshwater options in the hinterland and a local boat ramp guide.

The second release was that covering Brisbane and Moreton Bay. This is now SOLD OUT. The focus of this book was on the accessible fishing grounds from Wellington Point south of Brisbane toward Donnybrook in the Pumicestone Passage north of Brisbane.

The most recent release is for the Gold Coast, covering Southern Moreton Bay to Point Danger.

  • Complete offshore reef maps with 220 GPS marks provided
  • Detailed information on targeting the offshore and bay reefs for success with snapper, sweetlip, pearl perch, cobia and more
