Australian Trout Foundation ATF Online
State Branches and Regional Chapters

As one of its major goals, the ATF is actively seeking local anglers from various states and regional areas across the country to set up State Branches and Local Chapters.


While the ATF is well established in Victoria and has already begun the process with some regional chapters in Victoria already operating, our eventual goal is to establish branches and local chapters in all states where trout are found.

A State Branch is now operating in W.A. with around 20 members and growing. We hope to have a dedicated page or two for the WA Branch on this site in the near future.


NSW, South Australia and Tasmania all have a small number of people that have expressed an interest in forming an ATF chapter in their state but to do so will require more dedicated locals to get involved. We can offer some guidance on setting up and each state chapter would be free to look after their own local issues (within the ATF's goals and policies) with the support and backing of a national organization.

If you are interested in helping us to establish a chapter in your state, please contact our president or secretary ( or with your contact details so we can put you in touch with other interested persons in your state.


Latest Update:
The ATF is well on its way to establishing a 'State Branch' in Western Australia with strong interest from over there. If you are from WA and have a keen interest in joining their ranks, please use the membership page to join up or email your details to: so the W.A. working group can get back in touch with you.


We have also recently had further discssion with a small number of keen anglers from South Australia with similar goals of setting up a State Branch of the ATF in their state. Please contact us if you have an interest in this.


NSW & Tasmania - What are you waiting for?
