Funky Fishing is a family fishing and diving competition based in Whangarei Harbour. Organised by Whangarei Heads School and Community Library, there are great prizes and heaps of fun for young and old.

Heaps of prizes!

Weigh-in is at Whangarei Heads School where there are children’s activities, food, plus our unique fish auction. So if you missed out on a big snapper or kingfish there’s a second chance to get one, while at the same time helping raise money for the children at our local school and community library.

The competition is on 19 March 2016, so here’s hoping for more great late summer weather and good fishing for everybody.

Tickets will be available at local outlets and go on sale mid-December. Check our Facebook Page for latest news.
