About the Event


Guyra’s TroutFest celebrates the Trout Season opening in streams and dams of Guyra and the high country of New England. Held in the heart of Guyra and at the Mother of Ducks Lagoon, fishing activities include a children’s clinic on fishing essentials culminating in the excitement of catching a huge trout to take home. As well as the weekend-long Fishing Classic competition, there are plenty of other activities to do and things to see. Saturday is TroutFest’s Market Day with food and wine tasting, and stalls of many kinds in the main street. The atmosphere is fun and lively with free live music all day. There will be a fly tieing demonstration and activities, especially for children. Kids can search for hidden trout for a reward or go fishing in the tenth dam at the Golf Course. The retailers join in with decorated fishy-themed window displays and weekend deals. Other events include the Art Show, Metal to Masterpiece amongst vintage cars, and the hugely popular tours of cool-climate Guyra district gardens. The program also includes Rotary's Book Fair, antique machinery and tool displays plus Poetry at the Australian Poet's Hall of Fame. Please see the Facebook or website for the full program.
