Wally & Kerri Draper invite you into their “modest” backyard, the Banyan Farm Tourist Park to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and a chance to catch a Barramundi from the beautiful Daly River.
This family friendly landscaped park is set amidst a bush setting, perfect to sit back and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. The Daly River is a picturesque tidal river home to fresh and salt water crocodiles, abundant birdlife and of course a premium destination to experience barramundi fishing.
Banyan Farm Tourist Park has been the preferred location for two of the Australia’s biggest fishing competitions The Barra Nationals since 1998 and The Barra Classic since 2000.
Banyan Farm Tourist Park provides an easy to use boat ramp, safe and secure pontoon mooring for more than fifty boats. Fishing charters are also available from Banyan Farm, for more details visit: www.darbysbarrafishing.com.au
Activities other than fishing include swimming and lounging in the shady pool area, bird watching at one of the large and secluded billabongs on the property or follow the bush walking tracks around the billabongs.
Banyan Farm is an officially appointed ‘River Watch Centre’ and as such provides government information regarding navigation, boat safety, tidal predictions, fishing regulations and environmental aquatic issues.Accommodation on offers is powered and unpowered caravan and camping sites, sleeper cabins and self contained cabins.
