We visit annually with adult children and grandkids and despite the repeat visits I still blanch at the costs. $29.50 per adult and even if you only plan on taking photos you still pay. We have never caught more than 5 prawns between us each...More
Visited during October school holidays and was pleased to see lots of new items added to the prawn ponds, such as boats you can pull yourself out on and lots of fishing jetties. Staff were friendly enough and helpful when we needed it.

While the prawns...More

We didnt catch any prawns which sucked, we took our kids on the pedal boats which was fun for about 10 minutes. The prawn fishing is probably more suited to older children. My 3 year old was more interested in running around the park and...More
