Welcome, skip to the content.

A visit to Buxton Trout and Salmon Farm is a great fun day out for the whole family. Young kids through to grandparents can all be thrilled by hooking onto a rainbow trout or atlantic salmon in their picturesque natural bush setting. While you are there why not sample their famous Mountain Ash Smoked Trout, their premium hand-milked salmon caviar, have a barbecue with the kids, or just feed the fish and relax.

The farm is Australia's first commercial Trout farm where trout have been reared for over 50 years. The gravity fed water supply originates from the snowfields of Lake Mountain before cascading down Steavensons Falls and through its streams providing the perfect place to grow a clean, natural food.

The farm is open every day for visitors and fishermen on the Maroondah Highway in Buxton.
