the tour is amazing. this is something new to me. we get to play with the ships, get to see some other animals too. the tea and scones are also good.
You get to the Sheep Farm by taking the TSS Earnslaw (reviewed separately) from Queenstown dock. You must go to a sheep farm if visiting New Zealand, so this was the one we selected and we were very pleased with this choice. When we went, there was also a large tour group from China, but we were easily able to... More
We took the half day tour (as last min booking) to Walter Peak Farm and I would say it was one of the best attraction in Queenstown... the tour included cruise on the oldest steam boat to the Walter Peak farm and also the farm tour (refreshments included)..
Russell was our guide and he was great with the kids too! Kids and adults could feed the deer, sheep and the cattle. The sheepdog herding display was excellent and then Russell explaining and shearing a sheep was very interesting. The farm tour option with the TSS Earnslaw was worth it and included was a tea and cake in the... More
From the Queenstown wharf we caught the steamboat TSS Earnslaw, which was a complete step back in time. It was a slow & leisurely trip across Lake Wakatipu with the boat chugging along at a pedestrian pace. No-one minded, the only drawback to the trip was constantly having to try to avoid the nasty smoke fumes from the steamer's coal-fired... More
Great experience! Food was amazing (and so much!) staff was lovely! The sheep show was awesome and the dogs were just the cutest!! Perfecto!! :) would do again
This is a beautiful steam ship ride across the lake, followed by a rather sedentary introduction to some deer, some sheep, a cream tea, a sheep shearing demo and a lovely collie rounding up some sheep. Highlight was the collie. Pleasant way to spend 3 hours if the Sun is out and you are not in a rush! Recommend- depends... More
I would recommend this trip to all. Peaceful cruise across the lake to the BBQ lunch at Walter Peak farm. Lunch was OK, gardens were in full bloom, great view of the sheep shearing and loved seeing that dog move the sheep around. TS Earnslaw is a real treat - love the dining saloon and great view of the working... More
We love the farm tour. I live in Queenstown and have a 2 year old son. We go on the farm tour on a regular basis throughout the summer and he never tires of it. The boat trip over is always enjoyable, the views are amazing and the staff are great (especially the piano player). The guys that take you... More
Did the evening Carvery Buffet tour. Departed on TSS Earnslaw on time and had a wonderful time exploring this old but beautiful ship. The scenery is breathtaking and the ship had so much to explore. Very comfy and safe. Reached Walters Peak after 30 mins or so. Walked up to the beautiful homestead with flowers and greenery all around. Again,... More
