Places to go prawning are probably nearer your home that you think. What’s more, there’s usually little planning involved. Most ponds are open 24 hours and come with BBQ pits or eateries attached. Here are two easily accessible prawning places in the east to consider:

Location 1

At Fish@BigSplash, there are big head prawns as well as freshwater lobsters for you to bait from dawn till dusk! While waiting for the crustaceans to be entrapped, entertain the kids with your own growing up stories with dad.

To add an educational component to the outing, highlight to your children the different parts of prawns and lobsters (Note our reference links appended below).

The best part of prawning is of course, in the eating and  barbecuing your catch on the spot!
