... the history of trout and trout fishing in NZ, an active hatchery program and aquarium, a great walking path through the lush forest and along the Tongariro River, an education program and a kids fishing pool.
It is an unpretentious place with a wonderful ethos as a charitable trust to educate and inform and allow children in particular to experience catching a trout in a small well stocked pond that they have on site.

Lovely setting for family photos

Suitable for kids under supervision, because the spring joins up with a large river (and depending on the weather) the river can have very strong currents.
There is a bike park for children, fields for general play and a parking lot where the walkers returning from the Huka Falls Track can get away quickly.

Kinlock village is a popular family holiday destination with many walks, cycle tracks together with a lovely beach which offers you the challenge of jumping from high cliffs at the end of the beach.
Superb spot where children can roam free and enjoy so many outdoor activities.

They have a giant maze for kids to get lost in, flight simulator, mini golf, shooting range, great lego cave (find the lego characters) and absolutely wonderful array of puzzles.
The Lego cave is small but has some amazing designs - wished there was some Lego for guests to play with to create their own worlds, but can see this becoming an issue with lots of the children who visit.
