When it comes to ordering fresh prawns for the holidays, Fisheries on the Spit always has a massive line winding down the street, so it’s no surprise that these guys are also the go-to when you want the best fish and chips on the Sunshine Coast. Serving up the freshest seafood straight from the trawler, their juicy barramundi and whiting goes down a treat with a side of their crispy chips.
