Welcome to the Barra Fun Park. The only place in Townsville where you can catch a real live Barramundi or hop on the Cable Ski or jump on the Aqua Park.

BARRA FISHING

Open Saturday and Sunday 10:00am to 4:00pm and weekdays by appointment. Open every day during the Queensland school holidays. No bookings required.

CABLE SKI

We have 2 inline cable ski machines. Great fun for groups; perfect for beginners and experienced skiers looking to sharpen their skills. Booking are by the hour and are essential.

WATER PARK

An adventure inflatable obstacle course for young and young at heart. Open to children over 5 years old with children under 8 requiring a paying adult with them on the Aqua Park at all times. Everyone wears a life jacket and there's lifeguards on duty. Heaps of fun (if you can handle it). Open every Saturday and Sunday and every day over the school holidays, from 10am to 4pm. No booking required unless you're bring a large group out.

We really enjoyed our day here, it was awesome! The water park was fantastic for all ages! It was a lot of fun. The slip n slide was also great fun! We tried fishing for a bit & that was enjoyable too. The eating area & BBQ facilities are also great, really good that you can bring your own food... More

Very expensive, especially when you are only wanting to go for a quick 1 hour fish. This is definitely an all day attraction to get your monies worth. Prices were based off using the site as a whole. e.g. Entry to (fish for big barra, wake board, wipe out obstacle etc. etc.) was $XXX. There was no price for barra... More

Great fun few hours fishing, team working were awesome. Plenty of fun small sized Barra in the 3 ponds. You have to pay $89 to fish the big pond. I'd recommend using the whole park, cable ski etc and making a day of it. We paid $29 just to fish the small ponds. Enjoy

Had an epic day out at the fun park. Was a great way for my husband and I to spend our Easter being so far away from family. Everyone was so nice and friendly and up for a chat. The fishing was so much fun and as for the waterpark - kids make it look so easy!

Little kids will love the jumping pillow, water slides and fishing. Big kids will also love the fishing, plus the inflatables & banana boat rides. The staff are very friendly & laid back. Great value for money on the general pass, pay extra for wake boarding, or fishing in the big dam. Love that you can pack & bring your... More

My two adult sons went with intention of doing wake boarding which unfortunately was broken down. They got the ski pass and did everything else and had a fantastic time. The owner realised that was the main reason the boys came so gave them a free pass each. We called the next day to be told it had been repaired... More
