“Great Grounds - not much fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

We expected something of a hatchery and were let down in this respect. However, the grounds are absolutely gorgeous. Green, big, interesting trees - all sorts of native flora. Great for photography.

“Wonderful gardens and good food....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Dropped in for breakfast on our way out to Strathgordon. Friendly ladies provided good service and food was excellent. Pancakes were great - icecream was excellent. Feeding the wide variety of trout and salmon was interesting - the exotic trees in the gardens were beautiful.

“fun to feed the fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

You can feed yourself with pancakes by the pond! And for $2 you can get fish food from dispensers and feed the fish, this is very exciting and enjoyable.
Even a brief visit is worth it, if you enjoy feeding the big (5 kgs?) fish.When reception is closed,( 5pm .)access to gardens is through the gate to the left and there is a box to leave your entry fee in.Its good to have correct change.
