Welcome to Huka Prawn Park

The ultimate prawn themed adventure park for all ages, Taupo’s only riverside restaurant, and the only geothermally-heated prawn breeding park in the world.

Discover fun for the whole family.

Huka Prawn Park, a place where the whole family will be entertained for hours on end!

Take a guided tour through our nursery and hatchery and hand-feed baby prawns, venture through the activities park , play on the aqua trikes, pedal boats and stand up paddle boards, fire off water cannons, discover the interactive adventure trail and so much more!

Pack a picnic, togs and towel and spend the day exploring.

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
(closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays)

Opening Hours:

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