We had to wait really really long for easy order of buttered prawns and chips. Also prices were high. Bathrooms were really dirty. However, on other hand, Taste was good. Environment and place was excellent. It was nice experience overall.
Food was delicious, I had the Crispy Battered Prawns and they were absolutely delicious. Was pretty busy though, so it took like 30 minutes for the food to arrive but it was fine. I think the other thing that could be considered is that the prices are pretty high. Yes I know that its like that for tourists so they pay heaps but for other NZers its pretty highly priced for 6 prawns.
Oh how I love Prawn Fishing! Over the years, my partner and I have found all the good spots and gotten our catching technique down. We always catch a few small buckets full. Even people who come here for the first time can expect to catch some prawns. There is a free cooking pot where you can cook the prawns yourself, or you can get them cooked at the restaurant and enjoy a nice meal. Yes, it is pricy to get in, but you can spend a whole day here and not get bored of it!
We spent half a day here. We tried prawn fishing and learnt heaps about commercial prawn farming. The restaurant was pricey. So it might be good to bring your own food for a picnic. It was a unique experience. Highly recommended!
Absolutely love this place have been several times. Its not cheap but so much fun for the whole family. The kids caught more then i did they had a blast. Theres a walk which is nice and you can also soak your feet or hit a golf ball to win prizes. We have lunch there its yum and you can look out over the river and watch the jet boat. As none of us eat prawns we get ours in ice to take away for other family members.
WOW what a awesome day, this place had something for all the family.
My partner was fishing and when the children were bored i was able to take them off for a walk to the variety of cool experiences within the park.
Awesome day and definately value for your money.
One recommendation would be to take a seat or a mat to sit on while fishing
My family and I visit here every year. For what it is I believe its value for money a full day of entertainment and gorgeous on a sunny day then get to eat your own catch. Staff are always lovely. Set up is great. Recommend visiting here on your travels
We had quite a good fun. It wasn't easy to catch the prawns and I didn't know what to do with the live, moving prawn when I caught one finally but it was great especially when you have a little one in your family to entertain.
