Can you land the next World Record?
It’s been 12 months since Denis Harrold landed the world’s biggest barramundi at Lake Monduran, weighing in at 44.6 kilos and measuring 135cm.
Lake Monduran Holiday Park manager Rob Howell said he wouldn’t be surprised if the
record was broken again this fishing season.
“The fishing at Lake Monduran is awesome at the moment,” said Mr Howell.
“Plenty of barra are being caught around the 60 to 70 centimetre mark. It’s exciting fishing too; fish of this size go hard and fast and take to the air.”
And the fantastic fishing is set to stay for a long time. 80 000 barramundi fingerlings were released into the dam last week, to ensure the long-term sustainability of the lake. The park aims to raise enough money to release more fingerlings early next year. Get involved by sponsoring a baby barra and help ensure Lake Monduran remains Queensland’s premium
barra fishing location.
Limited accommodation is still available over Christmas break, with heaps of free activities at the park. Why not take the family and enjoy a well-earned break. Who knows….you might catch the next big one!

Fun for everyone at the Lake Somerset Family Festival
More than 2600 happy campers and visitors packed into Lake Somerset Holiday Park on Saturday to enjoy the FREE family festival.
Park lessees Australian Tourist Park Management (ATPM) threw the park doors open, hosting a massive family fun day to celebrate the recent improvements.
Managing Director Steve Billett said the park was a place for everyone to come together and enjoy quality time with family and friends.
“Lake Somerset Holiday Park has always been known as a watersports playground, a place for boaties and fishermen,” he said.
“But the truth is we have so much to offer on dry land as well, and we continually strive to provide memorable experiences for everyone.”
“SEQWater, Somerset Council, the local community and of course our guests have been very supportive of our efforts at the park and we wanted to share the celebrations with them.”
And they sure did celebrate! More than 2600 people passed through the gates to play in the baby animal farm, have their faces painted, enjoy the charity food stalls or have a go on the jumping castle.
The major draw cards were the night-time movie Yogi Bear and the fireworks spectacular.
A great raffle raised money for the Kilcoy Hospital Auxiliary to support the vital work they do in the local community. Prizes were generously donated by local businesses.
Mr Billett said the new park features were well received on the day.
“We have four new safari tents with lake views, an 18-hole mini-golf course and a new camp kitchen,” he said.
The safari tents are permanent, furnished tents that sit on the banks of Somerset Dam. They are ideal for those who enjoy the camping experience but don't have the time or energy to deal with a traditional tent.
