Crayfish season opens October 2019
The crayfish season officially starts in October in Kingston and Robe. Keen fishing enthusiasts visit Kingston every year to catch the renowned Southern Rock Lobster as it is also called. Visit the PIRSA website for information on licenses, quotas and general fishing information.
If you’re not up to fishing but just want to enjoy some fresh crayfish, the local seafood shops will be selling fresh, straight out of the ocean crayfish for your evening dinner. The local pubs will also have it on their menus.
