Taupo’s only Riverside Restaurant

Sadly we had to make the heartbreaking decision to temporarily close the prawn fishing part of the activities park in December 2020.
For an unexplained reason prawn numbers are mysteriously dropping off. We continue our extensive scientific research and monitoring to understand and fix the cause so we can offer this activity again in the future. This is an ongoing process.
Open 5 Days – Thursday to Monday

Weekends: 9.00am to 3.30pm | Weekdays: 9:30am to 3pm
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!
