About Us

It all began around 1990 when the doors opened for the first time trading as Fisherman’s World Kawana.

A few short years later it became a member of the Tackleworld group, Australia’s largest independent fishing tackle retail group to date.

It now trades as Tackle World Kawana and has always been owned and operated by a local family.

Here on the Sunshine Coast we are lucky to have such a diverse range of fishing from catching Whiting, Bream, Flathead, Mangrove Jack, Jew and of recent times even Barra just to name a few in any of three great river system’s and the Pumicestone Passage right on our door step.

We also have easy access to some fantastic off shore fishing on numerous reefs’ including the well-known Barwon Banks, where you can target fish like Snapper, Pearl Perch, King Fish, Cobia, Mackerel, Sailfish and the mighty Black Marlin plus many more.

If that wasn’t enough in our back yard only a short drive away we have several well stocked dams where you can do battle with Bass, Yellow Belly, Saratoga and Barra.

With such a vast variety of fish to target in our area we carry a large range of the latest tackle to suit the beginner to the experienced angler with product from companies like Shimano, Daiwa, Abu Garcia, Wilson and custom made rods like Gary Howard Custom Rods and if we don’t have it we will only be too happy to get it for you.

With collectively over 100 years of fishing experience our staff can give you helpful advice on the fishing gear you require to target your favourite fish.

Lure fishing in recent years has become a very popular way to target fish from Whiting to Marlin and we have kept up with the latest trends by dedicating over 45 meters of wall space to lures and for those that like to soak a bait or two we have one of the largest ranges of terminal tackle to suit all your needs.

Tackle World Kawana where every day’s a good day for fishing.
