“A little bit of History preserved.”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

A brand new facility, featuring a priceless collections of rods and reels, books and other memorabilia. The new aquarium features only native fish in typical settings. Set in native bush, walk through the bush along the bubbling Tongaririo River. A good place to take the grandchildren or your own, take a picnic, feed the fish in the children's pool, lie in the sun and enjoy the song of the native birds.

“This is a great place to take younger children”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

You see the young trout development right through to the mature trout in pools. Its amazing. The staff in the information centre were very informed and the display in there worth spending time to look at. Plus its FREE.

“Great place for families and anyone interested in fishing and good value”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

Value for money. Great to be able to follow the life and growing cycle of the trout and to be able to see them in their natural environment as well.
