Trout Centre

Kid's Fishing


The Tongariro National Trout Centre is a great place for kids.
Feed the trout in our Children's Fishing Pond, check them out in our underwater viewing chamber and learn about the Taupo fishery and the Tongariro River.

On special days of the year we open our pond for childrens public 'fishouts'. These days always book out so contact us today to make your family booking

Send us your pictures from our fishout and we will add them to our gallery.  admin@troutcentre.com
