TSS 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 108 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 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.

Gorgeous afternoon on the lake

A lovely trip on the TSS Earnslaw - I've never actually seen someone shovelling coal into the furnace before! The farm displays of shearing and the working dogs were lovely to behold, the dogs seemed to have so much fun, not only working the sheep but interacting with the visitors. What an idyllic spot the farm has, with its beautiful scenery, very nice cakes and scones and range of livestock. The trip back was just as picturesque, and all too soon we were back in Queenstown. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
