Tae Rak Aquaculture Centre
Open Wed ~ Sun | 9am ~ 4pm
The Tae Rak Aquaculture Centre is a state-of-the-art facility designed to showcase one of the world’s most extensive and oldest aquaculture systems. It is located on the shores of Tae Rak (Lake Condah) and is open to the public.
The centre houses a Bush Tucker Café serving meals 10am~2pm, and coffee & cake all day, as well as a Retail Space and a Tour desk. The centre also houses a kooyang display tank for visitors to take a look at live short-finned eels (Anguilla australis).

To book a table at the Tae Rak Aquaculture Centre Café, please use the Open Table platform.
The Tae Rak Aquaculture Centre was built to strengthen and maintain the Gunditjmara community’s connections to the traditional practice of kooyang (eel) farming and smoking for future generations. Commercial activities such as cultural tours of the landscape, and the sale of smoked kooyang to visitors, will help keep Gunditjmara people working on country sustainably, and consistent with the Budj Bim Cultural Landscape values.
