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!

Wasn't too sure what to expect when we went here but ended up having a great time. The restaurant was lovely, really enjoyed eating the prawns! Catching them proved to be lots of fun but a bit frustrating at times.
A really good day out. Would be an excellent place to take children, and good value for the family.

Went to have lunch a while back expecting to get fresh prawns (which you would expect as it is a prawn park) however the prawns were frozen. They should have it written on the menu.Disapointing lunch.

Awesome for kids and adults alike. lots of activities, take a picnic or eat onsite in their restaurant, but dont forget the sun block even of an overcast day.
