TSS Earnslaw & Walter Peak High Country Farm

Relive the elegance of turn-of-the-century travel with a cruise on Queenstown’s iconic vintage steamship TSS Earnslaw.

Launched in 1912, the TSS Earnslaw is the grandest vessel ever to ply Lake Wakatipu. Today, the TSS Earnslaw is believed to be the only coal-fired passenger-carrying vessel still operating in the southern hemisphere.

The TSS Earnslaw makes several trips daily across Lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak High Country Farm on the western shores. A cruise on this heritage vessel is the perfect way to experience Queenstown’s magnificent alpine scenery.

Upon reaching Walter Peak High Country Farm, you can disembark for an insight into New Zealand’s farming lifestyle with a farm tour or our Mavora High Country Tour. Alternatively, try horse trekking or go on a cycling adventure. At the Colonel's homestead, enjoy a barbecue lunch or evening dining. All Walter Peak excursions include a cruise on the TSS Earnslaw.
