Highlights

  • Scenic cruise on board the vintage TSS Earnslaw
  • A guided walking tour of the farmyard
  • Demonstrations of the farming lifestyle

Your experience begins with a magical cruise across Lake Wakatipu aboard the TSS Earnslaw, a vintage steamship launched in 1912 and rich in local pioneering history.

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 freshly baked afternoon tea in a delightfully rustic old wool shed.

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