We visited the Trout centre on our way South. It’s a really good place to take a break on a big trip. There is a small museum, a fantastic aquarium with native fish and eels and the opportunity to see trout up close. The walkways are through bush full of birdlife (we heard Tui) and the staff are very friendly.

Visitors to the Centre will learn how trout came to New Zealand and why trout fishing is such a big business in New Zealand. There is an aquarium inside and hatchery outside. The centre has special kids' programs. Our guide was a very informed gentleman and his enthusiasm was genuine

We were given a fairly comprehensive view of what the purpose of the centre was, and what they did. The little museum was interesting, and the art being exhibited was a nice added extra. The walk through the grounds is very pleasant, and particularly lovely along the banks of the Tongariro river.
