With the Fisheries fantastic restocking program of the Macalister River since the floods in 2007 we have gradually seen the River itself come back to health. The trout have taken full advantage of this and we are now seeing third and fourth-generation naturals.

Each October, Licola hosts the Annual Heyfield Fishing Competition. Taking place over a great weekend, individuals compete to see what they can get, with loads of prizes on offer. What better way to chill out, relax with some friends and get yourself a carp… ooops we mean a trout or two, or 10.


Hunting Groups are invited to make Licola a base camp for your hunting group/party needs. Licola is based at the door step to the high country and offers great opportunities for all hunting parties. After a hard day in the bush, relax in relative comfort with our cabin accommodation, the fire pit, and our scenic location – get a good feed with self-catering or catered options depending on group size.
