Update on Prawn Breeding and Fishing – November 2023
As we approach the conclusion of 2023, reflecting on yet another rollercoaster of a year marked by various events impacting our environment, we find ourselves still in a holding pattern with our prawn breeding program. The team continues to work behind the scenes with MPI to secure an import license, enabling us to introduce new breeding stock. However, numerous factors and global issues beyond our control persist, hindering this process.
Open 5 days, Friday to Tuesday
Closed Wednesday and Thursday

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 👍🏻🦐
