TSS Earnslaw & Walter Peak Gourmet BBQ Dinner

For a dining experience unlike any other in Queenstown, join us on a trip to the Colonel’s Homestead Restaurant at Walter Peak High Country Farm.

 

Join Real Journeys for truly special and unique dining experience unlike any other in Queenstown.

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

Arriving at Walter Peak High Country Farm on the opposite side of the lake it is time to disembark for the ambience of the Colonel’s Homestead Restaurant situated in beautiful gardens.

The menu includes an extensive range of local and New Zealand produce, succulent meats cooked on the rotisserie, a delicious range of vegetables and salads. Then finish with your dining experience with tantalising desserts, cheeses and freshly brewed tea and coffee.

After dinner enjoy an insight into high country life with an entertaining and informative farm demonstration.

The entertainment continues on the spectacular night time cruise home, where you can join in on a sing-a-long with the ship's pianist or just enjoy the fresh air and stunning views on the deck as the sparkling lights of Queenstown draw closer.

Wonderfully Unique Experience

A group of ten of us from northland nz were treated like royalty from the minute we embarked on our journey. The whole experience was just awesome! The guys was 5 star, great farm show and our men loved the info shared by the skipper, Laurie, all about the ship. Thanks so much, its been a real highlight of our trip.

Once in a lifetime experience

Absolutely loved this steamboat trip with gourmet BBQ and shearing demonstration. We didn't expect much as booked spontaneously online but we loved the old fancy boat, the pianist on the boat set the scene, too but was just outstanding was the buffet BBQ. We're gonna dream about that for months or even years to come. The restaurant was in such a break spot as well. Highly recommended!
