Its snowing and we are growing

We were very fortunate to have welcomed two groups of international tour guides, to the farm in May, seeking new exciting destinations for their clients. This visit was facilitated by Destination NSW and showcases the opportunities for growing tourism in the Australian Alpine region. The tour groups notably from Singapore builds on the foreign base as a direct result of the Canberra Airport welcoming flights from Singapore. The expansion of regional activities is good for Australians with improving facilities and local economic growth both witnessed over recent years.

Guests were shown the farm walking on Wombat Way, beside Stony Lake and fished for their lunch. We were pleased to see a catch of a 1.8kg rainbow trout from the ponds a great achievement for any trout fisherman.

We are also pleased to record the expansion of the farm for the first time in 32 years with the purchase of the old farm kitchen circa 1890, moved to its current location by bullocks in 1937 and the old vet building, both offering some exciting possibilities while in the first instant any work will improve the entrance to the farm!

The farm is open year round providing with both seasoned and would be trout fisherman with the opportunity to catch the elusive rainbow trout. We remind all that we are open during winter ski season so you can fit in a spot of fishing, and there is our licensed “Tickled trout cafe” offering great coffee and the famous alpaca burgers. New for sale in 2017 are alpaca pies and our award winning smoked trout.

We also celebrate the Lakeview cottage being open for its first year, offering premium accommodation for visitors on site, catch a trout on a brief break from skiing, bookings: reservations@eucumbenetroutfarm.com or contact Eucumbene Trout Farm.

We look forward to welcoming you.
