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. :)

Great time at the farm

Demonstrations are easy-to-understand. Had great time feeding those lovely animals, and refreshment is better than what I expected!

Not to be missed

A must-do if you are visiting Queenstown! The ship itself is beautifully preserved, complete with an engine room where you can observe workers stoking coal for the engines. There is also a mini-cafe onboard, with hot and cold beverages, ice-cream, pastries and sandwiches. I thoroughly enjoyed the farm tour, which included a sheep-shearing demonstration. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and I learnt lots! Grogeous scenery at Lake Wakatipu and Walter Peak, plus the afternoon tea was simply scrumptious. Highly recommended.

Great family activity - Relax and unwind!

This trip was enjoyable, it was nice to unwind on the boat trip over to Walter's Peak. We enjoyed the farm tour and the afternoon teas was delicious. I guess maybe my only criticism was that afternoon tea would be better if there was a child's space nearby or children's activities or even a little play ground where the children could play when they've had their food while adults finish their afternoon tea. We got a discounted price through bookme - I would not want to pay the usual price for this trip but was happy with the discounted price.
