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!

Had great time at the Park.
It was first time fishing for our 5 years old daughter and was safe and geart fun, not just for her but whole family include grandmother. We just planed to stay 3 hours but at the end spent whole day until closing time.

My fiance and i had such a great time at the Huka park, we were supposed to stay for 1 hour, but a tour and 3 hours of fishing later we were still there! Oh and we had lunch too!

WE loved the Huka park soo much and it really is fun for all ages! Young kids, Mid 20's like we are and older people can all have fun!!

Going on the prawn tour is enlightening and you learn more about prawns than you will ever need to know!

Fishing for prawns is so much fun, i almost call it an addiction because my fiance and i spent 3 hours fishing and had so much fun! We can't wait to have children and bring them to the prawn park!

Thanks to the staff for such a memorable day!

We paid quite a lot to get it then had so much fum fishing we missed the tour etc which were included in the price and it's not cheap. However, it was fun so I would visit again, just keep an eye on the time and try to do everything on offer

We had a great day out here with the family. Lots of different things to do and keep the children busy. Also learnt about how the prawns are breed and then had a go at catching a prawn. No extra charges and you can stay as long as you like catching prawns. Bring a book and maybe some sauce to go withyour prawns. You can even bring in your own pinic and reduce costs. However we did enjoy having a coffee while watching the huka jet boat go along the river with out feet in the hot water foot bath.

Way too expensive fore my liking, I can't get past the cost of the entrance to say much nice about it. I guess if you took your own food and spent and entire day there it would be worth it. No one ever seemed to catch any prawns when we were there.
