Having visited the Trout Farm now twice, can certainly recommend a visit for either catching fish, purchasing fish or just going for a country drive.
We took the first option on catching and eating the fish we caught. Highly recommend this option as once caught, they clean and wrap in foil, provide salad and chips. Cook yourself and enjoy. If you don't like to fish, simply purchase and eat or return home and eat. A bit of a country drive to get there but worth the experience.
Note: Due to heath & quarantine issues, do not take your dog as you will be refused entry to the site.

A fun and informative introduction to trout fishing.
Nothing is too much trouble for the owners Karen and Peter. You can take a tour which provides a great understanding of the challenges of trout farming and its history as well as helpful tips on catching your own.
When you catch trout they can prepare it for you to BBQ and the cafe provides the perfect accompaniments to enjoy your catch.
The smoked trout Pate is delicious!

Thankyou, of course our award winning smoked trout is pretty good too! For next time, and we would love to welcome you again.

The January heat wave was a huge challenge to trout fishing while persistence was rewarded, as you achieved.

Great way to catch trout and the staff are friendly and helpful. While a catch is not guaranteed despite "Sure Catch Pond" everything you need is provided including ongoing tips and hints for better trout fishing and they clean your catch ready for the bbq. we caught 4 trout in about 3 1/2 hours and i don't think I have ever tasted any fish as good as trout caught only half hour before eating. lots of room for kids to run around and explore. my only suggestion would be more covered areas for sun protection

Hi Jill,

Thankyou for your review. The heat wave conditions have made catching the cold water trout more challenging and catching 4 is a great outcome.

We would love to see you again and maybe have a go at the lake, in milder weather. We note our shaded areas are to benefit the trout!
