We were looking forward to a lovely outing on our best family holiday ever! Excited we entered the trout farm to be barely acknowledged by the old man running the trout farm. The staff member was rude telling us to 'wait until he was ready to deal with us'. Whilst we waited our inquisitive 3 year old wanted to see... More

My wife and I will never return to this place again. The owner/manager is extremely rude and very grumpy. Do not waste your money going here. Go to the Buxton one instead. The staff are fantastic. Very friendly and could not help you enough.

We visited this trout farm on Australia Day 2014 with our two young children. The day started off fine and our kids were enjoying themselves but after an ugly and unprovoked incident in the afternoon with an aggressive and rude member of staff we have vowed NEVER to return. As my husband and son were trying to unhook a fish,... More

My partner & I we t there so she could catch a trout & we'd turn it into dinner that night. She thinks fishing is boring, so I figured a trout farm was the way to go. The staff were rude from the get-go. Insisting in payment up front just to walk into the pond area. Then, once fishing, a... More

Catching fish isn't as easy as fishing from a bath tub. We moved around different ponds until we came to the "easy pond". There was one point when I wondered if there were any fish at all but the operator came along and flung some fish feed into the pond and up hopped numerous trout! The fish were sneaky and... More

We were in the area and weren't sure whether to go to the buxton or marysville trout farm. We ended up going to marysville. Entry was $5 for adults which included fishing rod, bucket, bait etc. we started out in the challenging pond and stayed there for about 45 min and caught nothing. Saw a few trout in the water...

Trout farm situated in very pleasant surroundings on the outskirts of Marysville. Catch a feed or just watch others fishing. Picnic facilaties availble. Gear for hire and you can have your fish cleaned and filleted for a reasonable charge.Have a chat with the owners and hear the stories of how they have fallen on hard times during recent times.

We decided to go to a fish farm for a day trip. Google a few places and camp across Marysville trout farm. Orginally, the webpage wasnt appealing as the other fish farm and they don't cook for you as well. We didn't want to cook. But we decided to go there anywhere cos it was very cheap. Went to supermarket,... More

We visited the trout ponds with several little ones in tow, it was great for them to fish with guaranteed results! The salmon pond is seriously challenging and needs patience. It was a cold day, but on nice sunny day it would be wonderful to bring the rest of a picnic and then use the onside BBQ to cook your... More

Dropped in to see the trout and did not want to fish so they offered to catch the fish, clean and prepare the fish and then supplied the BBQ. What a fish, about 1kg each was eaten and we had to miss dinner that evening. I have never tasted fish so nice as it was barely killed and then on... More
