 Who are we?

First and foremost, our club is about fishing and the friendship that this brings. Each year, we have approximately 20 bay, estuary, freshwater, and surf competitions, plus several social trips in between. We have around 35 undercover boat spaces plus storage for kayaks. We also have two club boats available for members to use after being members for three months. 

Our club functions on members' kindness by participating in a twice-yearly weekend working bee and a monthly Wednesday maintenance night. We also run the occasional fundraiser, which goes towards repairing and maintaining our facilities. 

Any member wanting to store their boat in the club must be active in club activities, and their participation counts towards meeting a set of criteria. 

 Do I have to know a member to join?

Not at all, we encourage all potential new members to come and visit our clubrooms on most Wednesday evenings from 7.15 pm and view what the club has to offer.

 Do I have to live locally to join?

No, we have people from all over Melbourne including country and interstate members who only fish the occasional competition with us.

 I am a beginner and only fish occasionally, is your club only for experienced anglers?

Many of our new members have limited fishing experience and want to learn. Our members are willing to share their skills and knowledge. Any member who does not have a boat is always included in our regular boating competitions by riding with a member who has a boat or using one of the club boats. We also occasionally hold information nights on a variety of fishing related topics. We welcome all enquiries from males, females, and juniors. We encourage everyone to come down to the club on most Wednesday nights from 7.15 pm and inspect our facilities and meet the members.

 Do I have to own a boat to be a member?

No, many of our new members do not own a boat, and it is easy to get a ride with other boat owners at club competitions. It is a great way to learn the basics of safe boating and fishing.

Our club also owns two powered fishing boats which are available for hire to club members for a modest $20 per day.

 Can I store my boat/kayak at the club?

Yes, a person must first be a member of our club for six months before being eligible to apply for a boat or kayak space. A boat space applicant is expected to meet levels of participation in club competitions and activities set out in the club's bylaws, and this will be taken into account.

 Can I rent a fishing boat from the club?

Yes, the club owns two boats for hire by members with a boat license. These two boats are available for all members to use after they have been members for three months and have completed the in-house club boat school.

Can members of the public launch kayaks from the WNAC jetty?
Yes, the public can launch their kayaks from our jetty at their own risk. Please be mindful that the jetty is not a public facility, and WNAC members have priority when they launch their boats or kayaks. You can ask about membership to access the club's facilities, which include a few kayak storage spaces and equipment lockers.

 How do I contact WNAC?

The easiest way to make contact is to drop into the clubrooms on most Wednesday nights from 7.15 pm and someone can show you around our facilities.  Club Location
