Carnar-Fin Fishing Competition 2018

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this year’s Carnar-Fin Fishing Competition was cancelled, however the Carnarvon Chamber of Commerce identified the Carnar-Fin as a premier event for our community and with the loss of income to our local businesses and town, we have decided to run the event.  Proceeds will go to The Lions Club and to the re-opening of the Fascine waterways.
