The Australian Capital Territory is independent of any state. The idea was to prevent any one state gaining too much power by hosting the country’s capital. Actually, it was a job well done. If you are looking to learn more about Australia, Canberra is the perfect place to find out. If you are travelling on your own adventure, there are plenty of places to camp and fish.
The ACT has relatively relaxed fishing regulations compared to the rest of Australia. You don’t even need a recreational fishing license. However, there are some restrictions you should know about. Trout fishing is particularly popular with local fishos. It is important to note Trout are protected, so you’ll have to practice catch and release fishing. As a matter of fact, a number of fish species are protected in the Australian Capital Territory, including, Cod, Macquarie Perch, Murray River Crayfish, Silver Perth, Two-spined Blackfish and Trout.
