We were almost denied admission into the farm by a very gruff old gentleman manning the entrance. We were charged $35 entrance fee (which I think was fair and actually low for our numbers). However, as I was paying fee, the eleven year old daughter of my friend commented "Oh this is too much (it wasn't in rude tune). This... More

Brought my 13 month old son, my wife and a few friends along with expectations of some easy and fun fishing. We arrived at 11:30AM on a fairly warm and sunny day. The property is beautiful - many ponds to choose from with differing levels of difficulty and plenty of BBQ's around to use. We stayed for 3 hours and... More

Visited the trout farm in early August. Arrived at around 11am. Was nice and quiet. The elderly manager explained where we could fish. He advised the top ponds would be easier to catch fish in. Took my 2 young boys to the top pond and baited up. Within seconds of the first line going in a trout was hooked. Next... More

We visited this trout farms 3 times. The first time was 6 years ago I went there with my in laws in a raining day so couldn't enjoy much. We played a while in the deepest pond and unfortunately got my hook stuck to the bottom of the pond and had to have the line cut - the boy (maybe... More

Wonderful to be able to catch your lunch. You know it's fresh. Children rate it as one of their best days.

Friendly, beautiful, easy. Great for kids and beginner fishermen. Jenny took loads of time to teach us how and has a wicked sense of humour.

Beautiful surrounds and a great, wholesome day of catching fish with my Dad and my son. A little patience is required with the elderly owners, who've had to come out of retirement to manage the farm after some personal tragedies and the devastation of the area during the bush fires.

We went to the Trout and Salmon farm this long weekend. The other reviewers are spot on - this business should not be managed by this man. He is awful with a terrible attitude and zero customer service skills. We did not meet the lady. We paid our entry fee and the man showed us where we could fish. He... More

We visited this trout farm on 12th May 2014, a day after Mothers' Day in a group of 7. Contrary to the experiences of previous reviewers, we had a memorable experience on this farm. The lady boss (Jenny) was a sweet old lady who gave good advice on how to best position the bait, and which ponds to fish in... More

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
