Barking Owl Retreat Black Bream Brags

Atherton Tablelands fishing Accommodation Barking Owl Retreat has a large
private Dam with it's own Jetty so come and join in the fun and try your hand at fishing! Fishing equipment and bait is supplied although you are welcome to bring your own rods and lures. The dam is stocked with Black Bream also known as 'sooty grunter', Mouth All Mighty, and Barramundi. Try your luck at fishing and take your photo to secure a place on our Brag's page, then relax by the open fire place in the dam hut with some toasted marshmallows!
