An iconic trip, beautiful and fun - the cruise is a must do think to do
This was one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand! It was just fun being on the amazing and very cool ship, the Earnslaw, but to then have the great experience on the farm feeding the animals, watching the sheep dogs at work, etc. We LOVED it! We loved Queenstown. Great value for the experience.
Excellent in one word. Really loved their sweet treats, enjoyed.
Well worth the money and time.
What a lovely little day trip. We took the steamship over across one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. The Walter Peak Farm is
so rich in history and very charming. We fed and played with the animals, watched sheep shearing and sheep dog practice.
The flora and fauna is breath taking. Absolutely mind blowing!
A fantastic, easy tour, starting with an incredibly scenic journey across Lake Wakatipu from the middle of Queenstown Wharf on the historic 105 year old coal powered steamer called The Earnslaw. Once at Walter Peak Station the local shepherd gave us a leisurely introduction to the locals sheep and lambs, red deer, highland cattle, lamas, and friendly farm dogs. Then a short walk through the beautiful gardens for a home cooked afternoon tea/coffee that was delicious, before watching working dogs herd sheep, and sheep shearing.
The Earnslaw then picked us up and we enjoyed a wine/beer to piano music back across the smooth-as-glass Lake to central queenstown. Something for everyone, and very little walking required. Highly recommend, even for other Kiwis who have grown up around farms.
Relaxing cruise and amazing views during cruise and at farm. They gave us pastries and tea while we were there, which was a nice treat. Watched a few show demonstrations and were able to see and pet a variety of farm animals.
Tour the beautiful waterways around Queenstown on a working steamer boat that is used for transportation, shipping supplies and well as for the tours. The farm tour was very informative and interesting. Tea time was delicious! I cannot say enough to describe the natural beauty of the entire area around Queenstown. Seeing it from the water was amazing.
Loved it from the moment of boarding the old Steamer until we returned to dock. The High Country Farm is a 'feel good' touch with the farm animals. Most delicious afternoon tea with a view to die for. New Zealand .... best place on earth!
