Good BBQ!!

We skipped the sheep shearing becus we've already seen it elsewhere. We were able to wander around the farm and spotted alpacas and cows. BBQ buffet was delicious!! Best lamb we had in our entire trip in NZ. There were also vegetables and desserts. Too bad the timing was quite short (about an hour) so we stuffed ourselves 😂 On board the steamship we could visit the engine room. On our trip back there was a live piano country songs sing along session which my mother (in her 60s) loved.

Amazing experience and incredible food!

We visited Walter Peak for the second time in two years and were still blown away by our experience. The food is absolutely incredible, the staff are very welcoming and the island itself is very beautiful. The sheep shearing show is a great little addition to the trip also. You won't be disappointed by visiting Walter Peak. The Earnslaw is a cool way to travel. Just make sure if you are travelling in winter to wear extra layers as it can get very cold once the ship gets moving.

Walter Peak Gourmet Lunch

Absolutely stunning day first on the TSS Earnslaw & then at Walter Peak Station. In our opinion everything was unfaultable, food is truly outstanding, boat & station impeccably clean. A must do when you’re in Queenstown.
