Buxton Trout and Salmon Farm is Australia's first commercial trout farm. Trout have been reared here for nearly 50 years and the water supply originates from the snowfields of Lake Mountain before cascading down Steavenson's Falls and through its streams providing the perfect place to grow a clean natural food.

Little wonder this place has developed into a great fun day out for the whole family. Young kids through to grandparents are equally thrilled as they hook one of the rainbow trout or Atlantic salmon in the picturesque natural bush setting.

Mitch, the owner, has been involved in the farm for twenty-one years and has built up the farm's specialty which is Traditional Mountain Ash Smoked Trout. He calls it "the best smoked trout in Australia, along with the freshest trout you can get and the best quality hand-milked trout or salmon caviar".

Visitors may sample these products or simply enjoy a BBQ with the kids, feed the fish or just relax.

All trout are bred on the farm and Buxton Trout products are sold at the farm, locally, throughout the state and nationally.

The range includes: Buxton Mountain Ash Smoked Trout, Buxton salmon caviar, Buxton trout caviar, Buxton Fresh rainbow trout, Buxton Fresh Atlantic Salmon. For outlets see:
