The site is fun to walk around. The tour was lots of fun and very informative. Such good fun fishing. Got lots and they were so yummy. Must do! Bring a picnic and make it a day out if the weather is good!

We ate twice at the prawn park it was very busy but the food and service were excellent. This is a popular place and has a great view of the Huka jet boats. Unsure about the fishing but the food was excellent.
