Huka Prawn Park


New Zealand’s only prawn park offers a fun filled day of entertainment for the family. Pack a picnic and towel and spend the day creating exciting prawn memories to last forever.

From the minute, you arrive at our entrance to our park you will be amazed at such a place existing in the world. You have to see it to believe it, start by joining our behind the scenes guided tour through the nursery and hatchery, feel the strange sensation of feeding baby prawns. Race up and down our new Boating Lake on stand-up paddleboards, water trikes or pedal boats. Watch the excitement on your child's face as you head down our adventure trail trying out the interactive activities, feed the trout, battle the family on our water cannons, only the brave tackle the water gauntlets ending at the playground and geothermal footbaths. Prawn fishing catch em if you can included, memories free. Or dine in Taupo's only Riverside Restaurant.
