What you can expect

Discover 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, playing on the aqua trikes, pedal boats and stand-up paddle boards, fire off water cannons at each other, discover the interactive adventure trail and so much more!

Pack a picnic, togs and towel and spend the day exploring, or dine on the edge of the Waikato River at our Riverside Restaurant with delicious meals and breath-taking views.

Opened in 1987, Huka Prawn Park is New Zealand's only prawn farm, and the only geothermally heated prawn farm in the world. With grit and good old kiwi ingenuity Huka Prawn Park has evolved and grown in to a unique world class activities park and riverside restaurant. Plenty to do and a 'must do' when in Taupo.
