TSS Earnslaw Lake Cruises

TSS Earnslaw & Walter Peak High Country Farm

Cruising on the “Lady of the Lake” is like stepping back in time.

Below deck, the steam engines hiss and thud as the stokers shovel coal into the glowing fireboxes. In the wheelhouse upstairs, the skipper rings through directions to the engine room using the traditional telegraph bells - the same method used on board a century ago.

A 1 ½ hour cruise on the TSS Earnslaw showcases some of Lake Wakatipu’s most beautiful alpine scenery and allows plenty of time to explore the decks and bridge. Visit the engine room, view the collection of historical photos in the Fo’c’sle gallery or join a sing-along with the onboard pianist.

The vessel has a licensed café onboard selling a selection of café-style food as well as beer, wine and spirits.

Cruises depart regularly throughout the day. You can choose to complete a cruise only, or a cruise, combined with a visit to Walter Peak High Country Farm for a guided farm tour, horse trekbarbecue lunch or evening dining.
