Tucked away in Glenorchy out from Queenstown is this wonderful farm - the Glenorchy Animal Experience. Firstly everything was well signed and we had no trouble finding the place. The staff here are so very friendly and so inviting making our young children feel very welcomed. This is as good as it gets with a hands on experience with the farm animals. There is a duck called Jamie that followed us around which was very cute. Children will not be disappointed with the choices of animals to meet including sheep, guinea pigs, rabbits, donkey, pigs, alpaca, horse, chickens, geese, cows, goats, deer and ponies- I’m sure I have forgotten someone! The surrounding landscape is beautiful making me want to pack up home and live there! Thank you for a great morning out, my kids throughly enjoyed meeting and feeding the animals!

The animals are so well looked after you can see them smile. They certainly made my day. This hidden gem is one hour scenic drive from Queenstown. The farm itself has a great view to the snowy mountains.

It was a really lovely day out, lots of friendly animals to feed and stroke with incredible views aswell. The owner was awesome and extremely friendly. I went to see the pigs, as they are my favourite and I was not disappointed!!

We showed up on a rainy morning with our two children to see the alpacas. Despite the rain the trip didn’t disappoint. The owners were friendly and engaging and we were given two packs of food to feed the animals out back.

There is a loop course to walk around the farm and the fan favorite is the pig that will open his mouth for you to drop in treats! There are several friendly alpacas as well as a number of sheep and some greedy goats.

Sheep are shorn daily at 2:30pm, but unfortunately we missed this. Staff are available to explain the process, though, and let children feel the wool. A small gift shop has various NZ and imported products.

We visisted here today. Was a great experience. All the animals were so beautiful and were really friendly. Our favourite was the donkey and pig that lived in a paddock together. The owners were really lovely and informative about the farm and the local area. Would highly recommend.
