Founded in 1956 by a group of local fishermen, Blue Fin is the largest fishing club in Australia, with over 14,000 members in June 2017.
The naming of the Club was interesting, after a long debate it was suggested by an unknown Aboriginal gentleman as The Blue Fin Tuna Club, we then decided to drop the ‘Tuna’ and call our club ‘Blue Fin’. The fellow who suggested the name has never been seen since.
Our first fishing trip was on Australian day in 1956 to Jumpinpin on the Gold Coast. The momentous occasion represents the true beginning of Blue Fin.
Over the years, Blue Fin has adapted to many changes and become a success story in the fishing community. Today, the nationally recognised social club provides its members a relaxing and cosy environment for having a good time with families and friends. Our facilities include Bistro, Bar, Café, gaming rooms, kid’s room, function and training rooms.
The strength of Blue Fin is its place in our community. We sponsor various local projects, run a community support program. Every dollar generated by the club is invested back into fishing or to enhancing our services and facilities for members.
