In the hatchery next to the discovery centre you can participate in a tour with experienced guides telling you all the secrets about the barramundi and you will get to experience the feeding of the large adults! You will meet Flossie, our 1.2m female barra, a truly magnificent example of this beautiful species!

Did you know all barramundi are born male?
They do not change sex until much later in their lives, when they have grown much larger!

Barramundi is the aboriginal word for large scale fish, very aptly named, too! You will certainly come out of the centre with a lot of interesting facts, and not just about the fish!
