Sheepworld is New Zealand’s Sheep and Wool Centre. In twice-daily live demonstrations the dogs round up and bring in the sheep, which are then sorted and shorn. Our Wonderful Wool multimedia exhibition then explains how the fleece is turned into an amazing variety of products, many of which are on sale in our store. There’s also an eco-discovery stroll through native bush, a natural adventure playground, a farmyard full of animals and an on-site cafe. Suitable for all ages.

I didn't expect to have so much fun at this spot. Definitely worth attending the show (check hours, it's done two or three times a day only) to see shepard dogs in action as well as sheep shearer afterwards. You are also provided with lots of interesting information during both shows. Mini-zoo, big gift shop & cafe (with free WiFi)... More

We had an amazing time at sheep world. Buying a $1 bag of feed really heightens the fun and presents lots of great photo opportunities. The sheep and dog show was really fun and I enjoyed the learning experience. Would have loved to purchase a souvenir but found the gift shop expensive. Bring bug spray. We had our feet and... More

Took our two 4yr old grandchildren here on a bright sunny day. Must confess that the thought of going to "Sheepworld" didn't fill me with a feel good factor. But oh I wrong could I be. Because it was the twins 4th birthday only a couple of days before the lady said not only could they go in for nothing,... More

My adult daughter and I took my 3 Grandkids up to Sheepworld for the day yesterday. What a brilliant show they put on - we arrived in time to have morning tea before the 11am showtime. The man putting on the show really knows his stuff (all about sheep and their wool, shearing, sheep dogs etc.) He is really amusing... More

I never thought sheep could be so interesting! We absolutely loved the sheep and do show. Dave was a great entertainer and so knowledgable. We only had about 15 people at the show we attended and it was a great size as we were able to get involved with the shearing, sorting sheep and feeding the lambs. There is more... More

But until you go, you just won't get how great Sheepworld is! As is a common theme in reviews our suggestion to go to Sheepworld was met with many raised eyebrows from teenaged boys. We ended up being there for over three hours and everyone was saying how great it was. The sheep dog and shearing demonstration is a must... More

We came by here planning to spend a good portion of an afternoon here. After feeding the animals for about an hour, we waited for the show (which lasts about 1 hour as well). The show is definitely the best part of the experience! You get to learn about how dogs help with sheep herding, feed baby lambs, and watch... More

Very nice place. The name is a bit deceiving. Not many sheep but lots of other animals. Definately worth checking out.
