Around 4km south of Turangi, this DOC-managed trout hatchery has polished educational displays, a collection of rods and reels dating back to the 1880s, and freshwater aquariums displaying river life, both nasty and nice. A gentle stroll along the landscaped walkway leads to the hatchery, keeping ponds, an underwater viewing chamber, the Tongariro River and a picnic area.
