The Barra Fishing park is a great place to spend a few hours, or even the entire day. 3 hour passes or day passes are available with prices starting from just $26 (child), or $36 (adult). We are open all year round, although the fish are less active in the winter. We are a natural eco friendly environment and whilst we cannot “guarantee” a catch we will do everything possible to assist you.
You will find everything you need at the park. Rod hire is included in your entry ticket price. Bait is an additional charge. Our rods are set up for pellet fishing but we also sell tackle and some frozen bait (prawns, pilchards and others). You are welcome to bring your own gear, but please all lure trebles must be de-barbed.
You may bring your own food and drinks but please ensure no glass and no BYO alcohol. You may use our free BBQs or you can purchase food and drinks from our kiosk or full service Café & Licensed bar. Located in the adjacent Watersports Complex.
Night Fishing sessions take place at the park during summer, usually from November 1st to March 1st on Friday and Saturday evenings 5.30pm to 8.30pm. Check out Instagram and Facebook pages for updates and times
A great venue for all types of school, work or sporting functions. Or we can do Barra Birthday parties also. Bring your own food and make use of the free BBQs. Read more about our Groups and Parties packages
