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.

It was absolutely bucketing down when we took this tour! However the ferry ride on the steamer to the farm was warm and cozy and we enjoyed a glass of wine. It looked like the gardens at the farm were beautiful but we obviously didn't linger outside. The dinner was fantastic - a huge variety of wonderful food and I am sure no-one left hungry. The sheep shearing was interesting and we enjoyed hearing about raising sheep and a little bit about farm life. We are glad we took this tour despite the weather.

Very nice end to the day. Nice cruise on the beautiful lake - in style. Very nice dinner - meats exceptional. Interesting short show by the farmer of shearing and sheep dogs herding then home again. Sing-a-long on the way home if you wanted to join in. We would do again and highly recommend.

A must do in Queenstown. The Walter Peak Station is a very well run operation having people seated and receiving drinks within 2 or 3 mintues and the buffet was excellent!!! The TSS Earnslow was a lovely experience, including an old fashioned singalong at the piano on the way home for those interested. Can highly recommend.

Beautiful cruise down the lake to a picture perfect home now restaurant. Buffet dinner was good and was topped off by a sheep demonstration on how the dogs corral them and then a sheep sheering demo. Very interesting to see how the engines on their steam ship worked. Highly recommend.

Exactly what you expect. A great cruise on the lake with outstanding views of Queenstown and the snow covered Alps. The dinner was much more than a BBQ... It was a feast. A MUST DO.
