Australia’s Favourite Fishing Kayak – Better Than Ever!

The long-reining favourite for kayak fishing in Australia and the world, the Hobie Outback has received its first major redesign in over a decade. Finessing the formula that made the Outback famous, the re-design adds more stability, utility, and rear load-carrying capacity. Packed full of features dedicated anglers look for, the Outback now comes equipped with Hobie’s 180 MirageDrive Turbo with kick-up fins as standard.

The extra-wide standing deck offers an improved casting platform while the re-designed wave-piercing bow ensures you’re able to effortlessly power through chop or wake with reduced hull slapping. This combination of features and hull design makes the Outback an excellent choice for open or rough water fishing.

The Outback strikes the perfect middle ground between the Pro Angler 12 and the Compass. Packed with many of the features of the Pro Angler series but in a narrower, lighter form factor and a more affordable price bracket.

The Outback encourages long days on the water thanks to Hobie’s comfortable and supportive Vantage CTW seat system. Four moulded-in rod holders, multiple deluxe H-Track mounts, and numerous high-capacity storage compartments ensure that all your gear is accessible so you can focus on the fishing. Massively customisable with accessories and options including fishfinders and live wells, The Hobie Outback is ready to take on whatever you can throw at it.

The MirageDrive 180 Turbo continues to deliver on Hobie’s legacy for reliable performance, confidence-inspiring power and all-day efficiency. With Kick-Up Fins, explore without a care. Kelp and logs? No problem. These fins automatically kick-up on impact and adjust back when you resume pedalling.
