Earnslaw Cruise & Walter Peak Farm Tour

Experience a relaxing cruise on board New Zealand's iconic TSS Earnslaw and gain an insight into high country life with a tour of Walter Peak High Country Farm.

Highlights

  • Scenic cruise on board the vintage TSS Earnslaw
  • A guided walking tour of the farmyard
  • Demonstrations of the farming lifestyle
  • Afternoon tea, freshly baked at the farm

Step aboard a 106 year old coal fired steamship and cruise across Lake Wakatipu with snow capped mountains as a stunning backdrop.

Soak up the spectacular views with a wine or beer from our bar, visit the mini-museum or check out the action in the engine room as we cruise towards Walter Peak.

Upon disembarking, you will be greeted by our rural host who will take you on a fascinating guided tour of this historic farm.

On this interactive farming experience, you'll be able to see a sheep shearing demonstration and watch farm dogs round up sheep from the paddocks.

Visit the holding pens and feed the farm animals before enjoying afternoon tea in a delightful old wool shed.

A unique and interactive experience that will enable you to immerse yourself into rural New Zealand life.

Please note: During 1 June - 5 July 2019 the TSS Earnslaw is in its survey period which means the departure to Walter Peak will be on another vessel.

A must see Walter Peak Station

What a lovely day we had sailing on the Earnslaw to Walter Peak Station. A must do when in Queenstown. My children loved feeding the farm animals on the station. The farm morning tea was delicious. A lovely expierence. :)

A pleasant and enjoyable trip

Though it was hot that day, I saw beautiful views and talked with nice staff. It was enjoyable when we feed the animals.

Walters Peak/ Earnslaw Cruise with young kids

We took our 5 & 6 year old children (and our infant in stroller) on this trip. 5 year old LOVED seeing all the moving pistons and boiler room of the Earnslaw -- too cool. Walters Peak is gorgeous. We watched the sheep shearing/sheep dog herding and the kids fed the animals. A very cool experience in Queenstown with young children. ALl stroller/pram-friendly, too.

Fantastic Afternoon!

Such a fantastic afternoon! The TSS Earnslaw is such a charming boat, steeped in character. It is a quick 35 minute cruise across the lake to Walter Peak Farm. We were greeted by Al and his sheep dog Kim who gave us a brilliant sheep shearing/herding show. The Afternoon Tea was lovely and plentiful. A wonderful afternoon spent away from the hustle and bustle of Queenstown. I will definitely be returning. Thank You!
