The worlds only geothermally heated prawn park


Tender closing 12.00pm, Wednesday 3 November 2021 (unless sold prior)

44 Roberts Street, Taupo

• Huka Prawn Park, New Zealand's only prawn park which was founded in 1987, is now for sale as a going concern

• Huka Prawn Park is a destination where the whole family will be entertained for hours with a variety of fun adventure activities and dining options

• Either further develop the existing park as a unique family destination, or use the resource consents and location to develop new opportunities

• All associated permits & consents in place

• Long term heat supply agreement in place for delivery of 19,999 cubic metres of geothermal hot water per day, potential to diversify using this unique resource

Set in 12.8 hectares (more or less) of land, which is leased from the crown in Wairakei Tourist Park, Huka Prawn Park keeps families entertained for hours with activities including behind the scenes tours through the prawn hatchery and nursery, hand feeding baby prawns, play on aqua bikes, pedal boats, stand up paddle boards, water cannons, interactive adventure trail, feeding trout and, after hours of fun, you can enjoy a meal at Taupo's only riverside restaurant which seats up to 300 people.

Prawn fishing is currently unavailable due to low survival rates, new broodstock are urgently being sourced to resolve the issue, however the park has developed over the years beyond prawns to become a popular family entertainment attraction entertaining thousands of visitors over the years.

With the large resource consents for hot and cold water, combined with the large measure of land, the property can be re-imagined and re-allocated to things such as a geothermal fun park or grow high end health supplements via warm water algae such as spirulina and chlorella.

Call us today to discuss this once in a lifetime opportunity.
