As well as producing over 30 tons of shrimp a year, this quirky aquaculture venture plays host to a wide range of games and activities. Begin your visit with a guided tour of the prawn nursery and hatchery before practicing your putt at the hole-in-one golf challenge, trying your hand at prawn fishing, or resting your feet in the geothermal footbath. Kids will enjoy testing their balance on the adventure walkways and tinkering on the water piano. When hunger strikes, you can feast on your own haul of shrimp or visit the riverside restaurant.

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.
