Fun, Fishing & Friendship

Ribbons 2023!

Welcome to Ribbons! We are the largest women’s fishing club in Australia and home to the annual Ribbons Ladies Game Fishing Tournament.

We are based in Cairns, at the edge of the Great Barrier Reef, the greatest coral reef system in the World.

Our fishing club is run by a committee of volunteer members, established in 1983 on the core values we live by today; Fun, Fishing and Friendship!

The Ribbons 40th Anniversary Tournament will be held from 1st – 3rd December 2023. So lock the dates in your diary and keep up todate by following the Ribbons Ladies Game Fishing Club Facebook or Instragram page.
