Event Description

Was Redclaw Aquatica now Greenleaf Aquaponics.

Anyone vaguely interested in Aquaponics will be fascinated by this industrial sized set up of Wayne and Dougs. There are 15000lt of fish pond filled with various fish and a long covered grow area with raised grow beds filled with abundant greens and edible flower plants. The guys are in the process of finding out what grows well - watercress is proving very popular at the moment with the NZ contingent in Australia.

PLEASE BRING A SMALL PLATE OF MORNING TEA TO SHARE. BRING YOUR OWN MUGS. THE GUYS TELL ME THEY ARE SETTING UP AN URN.

PLEASE NOTE: There are about 2kms of unpaved road to traverse. My i30 managed it no trouble.

Our ecologically friendly farm is spread over 32 acres of Queensland farmland, at the foot of the Glass House Mountains. You can find us south of the Sunshine Coast, not far from Beerburrum.

RedClaw Aquatica are now able to offer silver perch, jade perch and yellow belly fingerlings each breeding season.

The fingerlings are spawned on the farm and grown to 5omm for sale for either grow out operations or dam stocking (silver perch and yellow belly only).

Note: they no longer sell the Redclaw crayfish.

We grow chemical free salad greens, herbs, kale and edible flowers.


Everyone is welcome to contact us for product or come to the farm and pick your own straight from the garden.

It certainly did go ahead Chris. See Darren's report HERE.

We don't have any immediate plans to go back again, maybe in a year or so, but the guys are happy for people to come visit on their own. Just contact them either on their FB page or I could provide a phone number privately.

Hi, just wondering if the visit went ahead?  If not, I would love to come on the next date.

Comment by Lissa on November 6, 2014 at 6:10

I cannot come. I can't change the other appointment on the same day :(

I've asked Elaine to thank Wayne and Doug on behalf of the group for going to the trouble of having us visit, setting up an urn etc.

I hope you have all read the information in the Event listing carefully and understand there is some unpaved road to traverse.

I have run into a problem. I'm double booked for this date :/

How would attendees feel about a possible change of date to the following weekend 15th?

I've already been to visit so me going again isn't a necessity and I'm yet to check if a change of date would suit the guys at Greenleaf.

You'll need to post your suburb Diana. Hopefully someone can assist.

I'm keen to attend but looking for a car pool. Very happy to contribute towards fuel. Can anyone help?

I'm pretty sure that I'll be coming.  I just need to check my diary when I get home.  They'll definitely benefit from my tips (um... that was a joke, folks!)

They sell greens and fingerlings. It seems to be a giant aquaponics set up. I'm hoping to make a quick visit before this outing to check out exactly what they do offer, but it should be interesting either way.

Very smart! So we visit and can buy some greens? Unbeatable!
