Called in early before coming to have a barramundi tour. After two hours drive and only arrived to be told that the tour has been canceled. Kids are very disappointed and the place is poorly managed. Would recommend anyone not to come.More

My husband and I really enjoyed our experience. The food was wonderful and so was the service. I would recommend the Barramundi Farm to anyone. If you are staying in Nelson Bay and are wondering what to do this is a must.

The tour was excellent the tour director (owner)was very knowledgeable we learnt a lot. We fed the fish saw thousands of them. They also grow their own vegetables hydroponically. The lunch was beautiful I had baked Barramundi. Fantastic. Would recommend it to anyone.

Seafood (particularly Barramundi) is the main feature of thius restaurant but we have dined with friends who have chosen non seafood alternatives. The open plan and deck area create a casual dining environment where you can soak up winter sun.

09.30 and you can do tours before or after lunch. I would always ring to ensure they have someone available to take the tours, as they take a lot of group bookings.
