The Ebor/Dorrigo Plateau is well known for having some of the best trout waters in Australia. Anglers will find the fighting qualities of our fresh water trout both challenging and enjoyable. When visiting the neighbouring trout hatchery you can view wild trout weighing up to 3.5 kgs. Let our experienced guides take you out for the day and teach you the art of fly fishing. (all equipment provided).
Only guests residing in the nearby Moffatt Falls Lodge or Moffatt Falls Cottage may fish the river that they overlook. (Moffat Falls is connected to Yaraandoo). This river is strictly fly-fishing only and catch and release. Guests may fish other rivers in the area if they wish to spin fish or keep the trout for consumption such as the rivers at Yaraandoo.
Moffatt Falls Lodge and Cottage have been built to accommodate the sport of fly fishing. Keen anglers may find this accommodation more suitable for fly fishing purposes than any of the other accommodation on offer.
The adjoining Serpentine River provides some lovely swimming holes for the summer months.
The information centre located on the premises can direct visitors to many of the natural attractions in the area including Yaraandoo’s own private and popular swimming hole and wildlife sanctuary. The centre can also provide information on the various art and craft shops, bushwalks and adventure based activities along The Waterfall Way.
For the less active, there is always that good book, a comfy chair and the wood fire. The nearby towns of Dorrigo and Bellingen make for a scenic drive down the mountain where art and craft shops and English style cafes ensure a pleasant day out.
