Spot Prawn season is getting a late start this year, with the fishermen dropping their traps on June 4th instead of early May. Prawns will be available for sale to the public as always on our Fish Sales Float, though this year will be a little different with the social distancing measures that will be in place. Sales will start on June 5th from 1pm when the boats return from their fishing grounds. Keep an eye out on site for signage and staff to direct you through the appropriate measures to access this local delicacy alive and kicking, straight from the boats that catch them!
