JUNE 2017 

Volunteer Marine Rescue Bundaberg Family Fishing Classic


Planning for the Volunteer Marine Rescue Bundaberg Family Fishing Classic for 2017 has well and truly commenced.  It will be held over the first weekend of the June school holidays from 23rd to 25th June 2017.

 Once again, we have sought the support of our major sponsors and will be providing three boat/motor/trailer packages as our major lucky draws –details will be available shortly.

 So, mark the dates for our 2017 VMR Family Fishing Classic on your calendars now and set plans to come along and join in the fun.   You never know you might also win some great prizes at the popular VMR Fishing Comp.

 Remember, you don’t have to weigh in a fish in the fishing competition to be eligible for the lucky draw prizes; just register and be present for the lucky draws during presentations on the Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon of the Fishing Classic.  See you there!

 Importantly, the VMR Fishing Classic is a major fundraiser for Marine Rescue Bundaberg.  Since inception of the Family Fishing Classic, much needed funds have been raised for replacement and operation of our primary rescue vessel which was delivered in March last year.

 ‘Like’ us and follow us on Facebook to keep up to date on the activities of VMR Bundaberg and details as we get closer to the 2017 Classic.


 The Volunteer Marine Rescue Bundaberg Family Fishing Classic for 2016 was held from 24th to 26th June 2016.

 It was a huge success attracting 1,748 entrants (453 juniors and 1,295 seniors), with some coming from interstate and all parts of Queensland to partake in some of the $72,000 of prizes on offer.  Good numbers of fish were caught in all categories and particularly in the Open Offshore category. Major lucky draws saw three Quintrex and Suzuki boat/motor/trailer packages on offer valued at $38,000.  Other prizes and lucky draws totalled some $36,000 (see ‘History’ for the statistics)

 Special thanks must go to our major sponsors who agreed to come on board in 2016 to support VMR Bundaberg once again.  Their continuing generosity and support is greatly appreciated, as is the support of all of our sponsors (See ‘Sponsors’ for details).

 Photos of the weekend, as well as past events, will be placed on our web site –is there a photo of you in there?  (See ‘Photo Gallery’ for photos)
