TSS Earnslaw Cruise with Walter Peak High Country Farm Tour
Combine an authentic cruise on the century-old TSS Earnslaw with a visit to the Walter Peak High Country Farm Tour - the New Zealand farming tour like no other!
Farming in the New Zealand high country is a way of life – and it’s one you can get up close to at Walter Peak. Situated on picturesque Lake Wakatipu’s south-western shores, Walter Peak High Country Farm is an idyllic place to spend a relaxing few hours. The farm tour is a wonderful and interactive experience, with something to keep everyone entertained and happy.
You will be greeted by our rural host upon disembarking the TSS Earnslaw, who will take you to the sheep shearing demonstration, where you will watch the remarkable skill with which the farm dogs round up sheep from the paddocks. You will then proceed for a walking tour of the farmyard, visiting the holding pens where you can help feed the sheep and deer, and even get up close to the Scottish Highland Cattle. Thereafter, stroll to the charming old wool shed for morning or afternoon tea. You may have time to stroll through the lakeside gardens before you re-board the TSS Earnslaw for your cruise back to Queenstown.
