TSS Earnslaw & Walter Peak High Country Farm
Disembark from your TSS Earnslaw cruise to a warm kiwi welcome and a taste of New Zealand’s farming lifestyle at Walter Peak High Country Farm.
Beautifully situated on Lake Wakatipu’s south-western shores, this farm is the perfect place to spend a relaxing few hours. Our rural host will meet you when you disembark from the TSS Earnslaw and take you for a walking tour of the farmyard.
The first stop is the holding pens, where you can help feed the sheep and deer, and even get up close to the Scottish Highland Cattle. Then stroll through the lakeside gardens to the charming Colonel’s Homestead for a traditional high country morning or afternoon tea of scones and pikelets.
Afterwards the farmer will lead you over to the shearing shed where you can watch the farm dogs rounding up sheep from the hill paddocks, and see the farmer shear a sheep. You can even try your hand at spinning wool before boarding the TSS Earnslaw back to Queenstown.
||Morning or afternoon tea provided (scones, pikelets, tea/coffee/fruit juice)|
||Barbecue lunch option (at extra cost)
||Duration 3hrs 30mins|
