Update on Prawn Breeding and Fishing
Prawn fishing is still currently unavailable. We are working through the process to get our prawn numbers back up to be able to open Prawn fishing again however this could be 12-18months taking us in to 2023.

So much to do, could spend all day!
Well looked after park with a team of experts willing to help. So much fun for all ages. Recommend bringing a change of clothes for water activities and the guided tour was interesting.
This is a must do activity when in Taupo!
I don’t normally do reviews but this place is excellent. The concept is fantastic, the whole family had a awesome day at the prawn farm. This is a 100% must do activity when in Taupo. You will love it 👍🏻🦐
We had a great time – everything you need for a family attraction +++! Food was yum and activities fun!
