Huka Prawn Park Reviews
Nice setting just down from Huka Falls, sit back relax in an outdoor setting whilst tasting what nice food is offer with a refreshing drink No better way to spend a lazy afternoon more »
Food is overpriced and not very nice. Not much options for non prawn eaters. Too many staff just standing around. more »
The entry price and experience seemed to be of good value and the concept of Prawn Park was very interesting. The reason for the low star rating was that it seemed like it was losing its maintenance fees or rather seemed a little dead. The idea of prawn fishing and engaging with the activities there was great but it didn't produce enough enthusiasm in comparison with the whole atmosphere. Many features include the foot bath in the warm waters and the feeding of the trouts, and other water activities along with the Prawn Fishing. It is an excellent time waster for families with children - however, be warned! The prawns are harder to catch than you think!
Great fun. Took a while and some pool swapping to get some excitement but once we got the spot.. perfect. Maybe 4+ hours, and about 9 prawns to take home.
