We thoroughly recommend this activity. Every aspect was excellent, the trip over and back a special experience on board the TSS Earnslaw. On arriving at Sir Walter Peak Station the view was stunning. The station is set at the end of Lake Wakatipu, with beautifully presented buildings and gardens. The food was truly amazing, top quality and plenty of choice. Service was also excellent.

A wonderful evening with delicious food followed by some history of the area, the sheep and a mini sheep herding display. The sheep shearing was a bonus.

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!

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!!!

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

Booked via viator day before cruise on arrival reception could not find us, boat waiting to go, thank you to the guy who said hop on we will sort this as for a moment I thought we were not going to be allowed on unless as reception suggested they took our credit card details again, sorted before arrival at destination. Really loved this, steam boat history and engineering amazing, scenic ride across, gentle and timeless with accompanying piano. Do wander to front of boat to find info and look at engines. Don't take BYO on board, we did, and were told not permitted. The meal was super, better than expected, absolutely excellent, would highly recommend as such a high standard but be prepared to wait a while to be invited to start - plenty of time to enjoy all though so no rush required, the shearing... well we are well used to, but was a good demo by an interested guide.

A beautiful location with the Remarkables as a back drop. Walter Peak Farm is a very pretty place and the food and service for the Dinner was very good as usual. We have been before and it does get busy.
I would go again, the next time we are in Queenstown.

Enjoyed the boat ride. Could not hear the guide due to all the noise from people talking. Farm trip was great and the food was the best of the trip.

The ride on the steamship Earnslaw was like a trip into the past. The dinner buffet at the farm was very well organized and the food was delicious. The farmer who did the dog herding exhibition and sheep shearing was very entertaining. Overall, an excellent tour.
