  • Great time here and great fun, I returned a second time a few years later and the staff were even friendlier. Fish were on the bite and I caught 3 in a hour allocated. It's by no means shooting them in a barrel either. But that's part of the fun, The staff were great and happy to trade stories and also explain how the farm works, as it's not just a fishing spot but an active fish farm. Well done guys I'll pen this place in each trip I come to Cairns. Gavin mate, thanks for your time today.
  • Fantastic, great host and advice on landing a few Barra. My son and I will definitely be returning to Hook some more Barra.
