So much to see...so little time to see it all.

Go Koi Krazy @ Bringelly


There we were, Ms Pam and I, driving along the 'country' roads of outer Western Sydney on a sunny Sunday afternoon. We drove by a lot of small farms that grow and sell tomatoes and strawberries and the like direct to passing motorists when we caught the sign for another kind of farm; the Australian Koi Farm. I don't know about eating Koi, but if you love your pet fish large and colourful, then the Australian Koi Farm is a place you should head to.



Owner Hans Boehner, originally from Cologne in Germany, bought his first pair of Japanese Koi 37 years ago and things just got a little out of hand from there. His property at Bringelly is the largest Koi Farm in the southern hemisphere. There are thousands of Koi here of all colours and sizes.



There are tiny fingerlings on sale for $3.00. Increasingly larger fish are available for $50.00, $100.00 and onwards up to $1500.00. Hans is on site to answer your Koi kwestions such as how old is a $100.00 fish? About three according to Hans but his oldest fish on the farm, at 37, is not for sale.



Hans's trophy cabinets are full to the brim proving that the champion Koi he has on display are star attractions in their own right.

Come here to start your your new Koi fish school or just drop by while you're picking up some fresh strawberries and check out Hans's mighty impressive Koi kollection on display.
