On arrival, we where presented with rods with non barbed hooks, a net and a bucket of bait. We had arrived on an extremely hot day so we placed our stuff on picnic table under a tree, next to two of the three ponds.
With the hooks not being barbed, even Miss 3 was able to hook the bate and with a little help from daddy, and was casting a line in no time. When a fish was caught, which didn't take very long, (perfect for an impatient child), they where scooped up in a net, had the hook easily removed then placed back into the water. Excellent for a novice fishing family like us.
There where plenty of other activities for Miss 3 to do at Eco Park Fishing World too such as a jumping castle, animal feeds, paddle boats, pedal go karts, a play park plus much more. We didn't partake in much of the other activities, only because of the hot day we'd chosen to visit, so we hid in the shade of a beautiful old tree instead but still had a great time.
KidTown Melbourne tip...
