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!

Didn't fish for shrimp, but ate at the restaurant. The entry price was steep and the shrimp fisherman didn't look like they were catching any. I had the six battered shrimp plate, which was over-priced. The café is located on a very scenic river.

What a treat! Lots of space, ponds full of trout and prawns. You can feed them by hand and fish for them with a little hook and some bait. Best of all, you eat the catch. Lots of activities are available as well, from driving golf balls into the ponds to frisbee or just watching the action on the river from the comfort of the restaurant. I will be back.

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
