The Boyne Tannum HookUp Event has been capably supported by various stalls; including food, beverages, promotional and entertainment to ensure a family fishing offering for visitors.
For over 24 years the Boyne Tannum HookUp has been delivering a weekend full of live music, stalls, entertainment and of course fishing. The event offers a number of boats as part of a massive prize pool, including three tagged fish with $5,000 in prize money attached to each. Crowds start gathering in the park from about 2pm onwards each day to culminate in almost 10,000 people by the 6pm fish category prize announcements and the $350,000+ worth of promotional prize draws. The Friday and Saturday nights involve live bands on stage for entertainment and the Sunday night has the massive major prizes drawn and spectacular firework display. All nights finish by 10pm.
The HookUp is Australia’s Biggest Family Fishing Competition; measured by both size of prize pool and number of entrants. Our vision is for the event to be a Family Favourite Fishing Competition. Whilst conducting this highly successful fishing competition, we provide opportunities for local businesses and community groups to generate income, attract people to the Gladstone Region, and to develop long term partners for the event.
The event has attracted major sponsors over the 25 years, of which many have continued to remain sponsors for the entire time – and new sponsors are coming on board every year.
The Boyne Tannum HookUp Incorporated is very proud of this long standing event and believes that through ongoing improvement the event will continue to grow and the local community continues to prosper from it.
The Boyne Tannum HookUp is looking forward to working closely with all HookUp Stallholders in the future because they are a part of our successful event delivery model.
Stallholder registration for 2022 will open shortly.
