Australia's northern capital city, Darwin, is a major centre for recreational fishing in Australia. Not only is National Australia Fishing Annual (NAFA) produced there, but also NAFA's Barra, Bass & Bream Digest.

Established in 1992, NAFA is Australia’s largest and most widely distributed fishing magazine, available through newsagents, BCF stores, selected tackle shops and now online. NAFA is a bi-annual, coming out in May and November of each year. It is a large format, full colour, gloss magazine with almost 300 pages of content per edition.

Due to popular demand, NAFA now incorporates a flipover magazine called NAFA's Outdoors 4X4 Travel & Camping. With this new addition, NAFA is not only a reliable and authoritative source for information on all aspects of fishing and boating, but also 4WD, travel and camping.

This quality magazine contains informative articles and first-class photography from the best writers in the country and also features the popular NAFA Good Gear Model Pictorial.

Barra Bass & Bream is the first and only magazine devoted exclusively to the coverage of these three important recreational fisheries species.

From lures to specialised boats, motors, accessories, travelling and accommodation, the pursuit of these three fish are covered by our talented, knowledgeable and well-known writers.

This quarterly magazine is now well-established on the reading lists of Australian anglers.
