Come and Try Fishing

Experienced volunteers  will show groups of children between the ages of 5 and 15 years the basics of fishing. Parents are asked to help supervise their younger children. All fishing rods, tackle and bait are provided. As group sizes are limited to a maximum of 15 for each session, it is necessary to pre-book your place by phoning 03 5688 1554 or by sending an email with your details and preferred times from the contact page. We’ll get back to you to confirm your booking. Some places may be available on the day, but pre-booking is the best way to avoid disappointment. When booking, please nominate preferred day and session, along with your child’s name and age.

Session times for “Come Try Fishing” are 10-00am and 2-00pm each day.

Unfortunately, due to rising cost’s, there will be a $2-00 charge for each child registered, payable at the reception table at the entrance, when the children arrive for their session. Each child will still receive a free fishing rod and reel.

See the volunteers at the entrance to the Terminal on arrival and they will direct you from there.

Both Saturday sessions are booked out along with the 10-00am Sunday session.

Some vacancies still for 2-00pm Sunday.
