Great to take the children and they can catch, or assist to catch, a beautiful salmon. They then weigh and smoke it for you; various flavours or plain. There is an outdoor cafe with play ground for children. Also a short walk up river to feed the eels.

We were two couples, and we were quickly "hooked up" with a rod and good instructions and sent off to catch afternoon tea. We did get the message that there's no catch and release program, if we caught it - we bought it! Fair enough. In spite of the rain it was a pleasant location and each couple managed to... More

We went with the family here last weekend and it was a fun experience. Our granddaughters enjoyed the animals and the big swing and feeding the eels and then we went to the salmon pond and tried to catch one for dinner! It took a while but we got one and they filleted it and smoked it for us with... More

We didn't have time to catch our own fish but enjoyed the smoked salmon in the restaurant. A bit pricey but it was smoked salmon after all! Our Japanese friend enjoyed the sushimi. The staff were very helpful allowing us to use their phone to book a last minute decision to take a scenic flight. They also gave us some... More

Visited as a couple, but there are so many things here for kids too. Staff friendly and helpful. Catch your own salmon and have it prepared any way you like - smoked, sashimi, whole, whatever. Great concept. Next to the ponds is the cafe where we enjoyed a wonderful salmon platter of the local product prepared in several different ways.... More

A cool experience to catch your own salmon and get it cooked up/prepared for you to take away. It can get expensive quickly though. However he experience is awesome

I did not manage to catch any thing but did enjoy the experience and was rewarded by seeing the HUGE Grand Daddy Salmon of the pond swim by.The team did land 5 lovely fish which the staff very...

great way to spend a few hours or more. Fishing rods and nets were free and entry is free you only had to pay for what you caught. Pay for your bait if you want to catch a salmon fast & get a clear float not the orange ones!
