Watch the magnificent Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and a few slippery eels in their deep pool, set in one of the many areas of regenerating native bush. Rainbow Trout are members of the salmon family and, like their salmon cousins, can grow quite large!

Trout and Eels
Rainbow Trout are rather aggressive by nature and like to fight amongst each other while feeding! We have trout feed available for $1 so you can get up close and personal with the trout and some of the eels as well. You can’t do this at most zoos or farm parks!

Trout fingerlings are introduced to the Staglands Wildlife Reserve pool at just two years of age from the neighbouring Toe Toe Aviary. From the platform you can feed the trout and watch their beautiful rainbow colours as they splash around! A great family activity!
