  • Native Aquarium

    View one of New Zealands best collections of native freshwater fish. Our aquarium has Giant Kokopu, Koura, Tuna and Koaro to name a few species endemic to Aotearoa. Our local ika can be very shy and are especially adept at camouflage or hiding in their environment. Come and see if you can spot them.

  • Flyfishing Museum

    Learn about the history of Trout and Fly fishing on the Tongariro River, one of the best fishing rivers in the world. Rainbow Trout were introduced to New Zealand around the turn of the century and have been challenging anglers from all over the world who come here to try and catch them.

  • Rainbow Trout hatchery

    Walk through the original hatchery building and see where millions of trout fry were raised. Built in the early 1920s to grow trout populations, the facility is now used to provide a sustainable supply of trout for the childrens fishing pond, giving kids a chance to try their hand at fly fishing and catch their first Rainbow Trout.
