Ok. Thanks gents. It's no wonder people get caught out. There seems to be different rules for nearly every dam out there!

and Hinze from a kayak. Does the new SIP mean that it is all that is required, or does one still need a boating permit as well? 

No one I know fishing Hinze from a kayak has a boating permit, but we all have the required fishing permit.

The Hinze Dam is the Gold Coast’s main drinking water supply and premier freshwater fishery. The 1,500 hectare dam is stocked with Bass, Golden Perch (Yellowbelly), Silver Perch and Saratoga.

The Hinze Dam Fish Management Committee is charged with stocking the dam. In 2016 there were 67,000 bass fingerlings released in the dam. All funds for stocking are raised by Anglers through a permit system.
Fishing Permits

As of 1 July 2016 the Hinze Dam will be part of the Stocked Impoundment Permit (SIP) Scheme. A SIP permit is required to fish the dam and can be purchased here.

All existing permits will be honoured under the SIP Scheme until their expiry.

Thanks Ray and Dodge. On that advice, I think I will be taking my SIP to Hinze and go for a fish in my kayak!

Kudos to the Hinze guys for dropping their permit and moving over to the SIP.  It's a precedent that could be copied elsewhere.

I would agree, pretty poor form to charge a boating permit and not use the funds to stock fish IMHO.
