Fun family day
Dec. 2020 • Family
Great day with the family. We were there 6 hours and the kids only stopped to have a quick lunch then right back at it. Well worth it.

Great way to keep cool on a hot day. We all had a great time. The kids were exhausted after spending 4 hour there. Great value for money.

We spent the whole 6 hours at the Barra Fun Park and we seriously could have spent another 6 hours here. My kids had an absolute blast, we will be back for sure.

Great Day for All the Family
Sep. 2020 • Family
Thanks to management and staff for a wonderful day out today. We where so happy that we finally got the chance to come after you being shut for Covid-19. All staff where friendly,helpful and were not shy to say g'day , how's your day going etc..
The 3 small barra fishing ponds are full of excitement and we did catch 3 between us. Loads of people catching them especially the kids. Inflatable waterpark was great there are many inflatables and lots of ways to get up if the upper body strength isn't your forte. We are happy to support a family local run business and do wish you guys all the success in your reopening now and hope it is a successful rest of year for you.

See you again real soon 😀

So much fun

Great day out, great for teenagers but found the obstacle course was a bit to tricky in sections for smaller children, and they struggle to negotiate it. Slip and slide was a huge hit

A great afternoon out

We bought 140 young people here for an outing today and they had a great time! They were aged between 7-12 years and loved the water play and the catch and release fishing. We all had an awesome day!

Fun, fun, FUN!
Dec. 2018 • Family
I have been to the Barra Fun Park 5 times now, and every time it has not been disappointing. If you get there nice and early, you can fish at the optimum time using your own gear or with their rods. Be advised, if you do use your own gear, the barbs on your hooks / lures will be squashed flat. I was cool with that, as I don't want to hurt the fish and it makes it more of a challenge keeping them on a slippery wire!

Once you are done with fishing, head on over to the swimming ponds for a cool dip. Again, getting in early will ensure you have some personal shade (provided). I have shared on a few occasions with other patrons, and have lost no belongings. The water is cool, the inflatable platforms are great fun. Don't be that boring parent sitting on the side, get in with your kids and make some great memories for them! At the end of the day, you will all sleep well due to physical exhaustion.

I found the price of admission quite fair for the time spent. You spend more $/hr at the cinemas and get zero exercise :)
