Rhyll Trout and Bush Tucker Farm (Rhyll)




Rhyll Trout & Bush Tucker Farm ...for a natural experience and plenty of good old-fashioned hospitality.

Friendly fishing instructors will teach you to catch rainbow trout in a picturesque tree-lined lake and the all-weather indoor “Rainforest Pool.” Take your catch with you or ask the chef to transform your trout into a magnificent meal.

The Bush Tucker Trail winds through three hectares of native food crops, producing numerous edible fruits, berries, seeds, leaves and flowers. Learn about how the Koori people harvested and used these plants from the wild.

Visit the licensed Farmhouse Café to enjoy a lovely home cooked meal or a Devonshire tea featuring our famous Jumbo Wattleseed Scones. Browse the shelves to see what's new in our ever-evolving "Rhyll Good Tucker" range of home made bush tucker products.

Birthday Parties
Birthday Parties include entry into the park, rod hire and bait, fishing lessons and one trout caught per child. Fishing starts on the lake, then moves into the rainforest where they are much easier to catch.

Review:


The main pool area with easy fishing has a rainforest feel at the top through which a stream runs down to a 20m long deep pool where the trout are located. You should be able to catch a fish within five minutes irrespective of how bad an angler you are. A member of staff is always there keeping on eye on things, getting the fish out with a net, banging them on the head as discretely as possible and taking the hook out of the fish. The skill level requires to get the fish from the pool to the bucket borders on negligible. This area has tables along one side of the pool and a BBQ. There is also an enclosed sandpit where younger kids can entertain themselves while the older kids fish (the water is very deep so care is needed). The whole area is covered by a roof and is quite shady. Since it can get very expensive to catch a lot of fish and you can't put the fish back in the water, most families were letting each member catch one fish each.

Outside is the Trophy Trout Lake for challenging fishing. It is much more difficult to catch a fish here and kids may lose patience. There are some tables with umbrellas around the lake.

The Bush Tucker Trail is quite extensive and is a decent walk with loops and dead-ends although there is a basic loop shape. Other attractions include a chook house, cafe, four outdoor picnic tables with an umbrella and bush tucker plants for sale - grab a few and you might be able to become the Bush Tucker Family.
