Owner description: New Zealand's only Prawn Fishing Park. Located just 5 minutes from Taupo and offering hours of entertainment for people of all ages. Experience the thrill of landing the fiesty prawn at Hook-a-Prawn Fishing, enjoy the delight of hand feeding, baby prawns in the Prawn Nursery, and get up close and personal with Shawn the Prawn, in the Aquarium. Then head out to more than 6 hectares of fun and entertainment throughout the park, including interactive water features, adventure playgrounds, trout viewing and feeding, and geothermal foot baths. The day wouldn't be complete with relaxing beside the mighty Waikato River at the Riverside restaurant and bar and enjoying a mouthwatering selection of meals and beverages on offer. Huka Prawn Park, a day of fun and adventure for all!

While we weren't expecting to catch commercial quantities of prawns, the going was pretty tough and we seemed to be having more success than others around us. Good luck if you have impatient children.

The other activities (trout feeding, paddle boarding etc) were somewhat uninspiring.

Some might enjoy it and have a more patience than us, but it wasn't our cup of tea

Love this place. Fun day out with the family. Definitely worth the 4 hour trip from Auckland. Can't wait for our next visit

Great fun for the whole family with the boats and paddle bikes. The kids playground is awesome if your kids get bored fishing for prawns. Always fun to do the tour as well and feed the baby prawns. Love it!

Want to relax. Want a bit of sport. Kids want to run around and have fun. This is the place! Something for everyone and you get to cook and eat your prawns.
