What You Can Expect

Dinner at Walter Peak High Country Farm and Cruise from Queenstown

Walter Peak High Country Farm and the TSS Earnslaw

Launched in 1912, the TSS Earnslaw is the grandest vessel ever to ply the waters of Lake Wakatipu. Today, the TSS Earnslaw is believed to be the only coal-fired passenger-carrying vessel still operating in the southern hemisphere. Relive the elegance of travel in the early 1900s as you cruise across Lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak Country Farm and take in Queenstown’s magnificent alpine scenery.

Disembark at the Walter Peak Country Farm, for a BBQ buffet dinner showcasing New Zealand specialties at the Colonel’s Homestead. Sample an expansive array of New Zealand’s traditional cuisine from the buffet including fresh seafood, succulent BBQ meats, roasted and steamed vegetables and salads. Then finish your meal with our irresistible selection of homemade desserts, a New Zealand cheeseboard and freshly brewed tea and coffee. A range of wines and other beverages are available for purchase. The resident pianist will provide background music and the open fire creates a cozy atmosphere in the cooler months.

After dinner, you can choose to join a farm tour or relax in the bar before returning to Queenstown on the TSS Earnslaw.

Excellent! Boat ride was very cool on the TSS Earnslaw; arrived to the Farm for dinner-Buffet Dinner was very good; then did a short walk around before the Sheep Dog show and shearing of a Sheep demonstration which were both excellent. Totally recommend this trip.

WOW!
Having been to Queenstown before and missing out on travelling on the TSS Earnslaw I was keen to make this booking with Dinner at Walter Peak. Our cruise across Lake Wakatipu was fantastic and the TSS Earnslaw is such a lovely steamship - my partner loved the fact that you could actually watch the coal being loaded to power the ship.
Once we arrived at the Walter Peak station our night continued to be great. The station restaurant was set up beautifully and decorated lovely. The staff were so attentive and friendly and the food was absolutely exquisite. We were lucky to have a table for 2 in the outside area with a lovely view over the lake complementing our faultless meal. We enjoyed the fact that the chef did come around to have a chat at the end of the meal to see how we were enjoying the night.
After our meal we got to experience a bit of farm life, watching some cattle dogs in action and a sheep shearing performance. You could really tell that all of the staff at the station took pride in their work and were passionate about what they did.
We really didn't want the night to end, it was a fantastic experience that we would love to do again when returning to Queenstown.
By far.. this was the best meal that we had whilst in NZ, all should be commended!
