The Scamander River is typical of river systems that are common on the East Coast of Australia where you will find a number of different fish species. Small to medium-sized Australian, (or cocky salmon as they are commonly called) are present in the lower half of the river all year round and at times schools of larger salmon will chase the migrating baitfish into the river. Silver trevally is another species that are often caught in this area and provide great sport for kids fishing from the jetty and shoreline at the mouth of the river. The most common species, and the one this river is famous for, is the southern black bream. The Scamander Tourist Park is located in the heart of the township of Scamander on the main road and offers both onsite caravan and cabin accommodation. See also Camping Trout Creek
