Did you know Hervey Bay has an artificial reef, originally constructed in 1968, named the Roy Rufus Artificial Reef. This reef has become home to some Hervey Bays finest fish species and as a result, the fishing over the reef isn't bad either! Since the fish have made it their home there is generally a great chance of landing something wonderful for the dinner table. To learn more about the Roy Rufus Artificial Reef, read my other pages.
