What You Can Expect

Dinner at Walter Peak High Country Farm and Cruise from Queenstown

Walter Peak High Country Farm and Cruise from Queenstown

Relive the elegance of old-time travel aboard the TSS Earnslaw, considered the grandest vessel ever to cruise Lake Wakatipu. Board the 1912 coal-powered steamship in Queenstown, crossing the lake on a narrated trip to Walter Peak High Country Farm, and soak up alpine views of the Remarkables mountain range along the way.

Upon arrival at the farm, get settled in the Colonel’s Homestead for a buffet dinner of local specialties, including meat and seafood barbecued on the outdoor grill. Supplement your meal with an ample selection of antipasto salads and vegetables, then sample from an array of irresistible homemade desserts and a New Zealand cheeseboard accompanied by freshly brewed tea and coffee.

Listen to mellow tunes played by the resident pianist, and relax in the cozy atmosphere around an open fire on cooler nights. After dinner, join a walking tour of the farm to watch a sheepdog show and sheep shearing demonstration, or stay behind and relax with a drink — available for purchase at the bar — before returning to Queenstown on the TSS Earnslaw.
