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.

I can highly recommend the trip over and dinner at Walter Peak High Country Farm. The food was unequalled, the service friendly and efficient and the after dinner show a real treat.

We enjoyed the entire experience, from the moment we boarded the steam ship we felt transported back in time. The dining farm buildings and gardens are beautiful and have been lovingly maintained. The meal offered a large range of choices and catered for people with special dietary requirements (I am gluten free). Most amazing desserts I have ever had!!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

The cruise across the lake on the steamboat was relaxing and comfortable. The buffet meal had a wide selection of fish/meats, salads and vegetables plus lovely desserrs and there was ample to choose from - certainly did not leave the table hungry. We enjoyed the sheep show and then we returned over the lake under the starry skies - a good evening - a tour which was good value for money
