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.
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!
Walter Peak cruise with the Electric bikes was a really good way to see and feel the site!! Great choice and thanks!!
Very good value. One of the best things to do in Queenstown. The morning tea is good.
It was a lovely trip and interesting time at the farm very nice morning tea and good looking at the animals. Nothing to complain about.
Great cruise. Walter Peak farm has a wonderful sheep dog herding show and real life demonstrations of how sheep are sheered. Also there are lots of animals to see which gives you a feel for life in New Zealand. The tour was well worth the money.
The farm itself and the surrounding landscape is just breathtaking. The staff are welcoming and seriously, I don't know how they keep smiling considering some of the rude tourists I encountered... Time to check for manners at the border... Loved being able to get up close and personal with all the animals, especially my mate Bella, the sheepdog. Give my love to Dougall - the most gorgeous bull I have ever seen. This trip is one that I would do every time I visit Queenstown, just such a lovely way to spend the day.
Enjoyed boat ride. Very comfortable and fantastic snack bar. Guide at the farm was very nice and friendly. Great sheep demonstrations. We had the morning tea with amazing scones and plenty to eat and drink. Nice pace for the day.
One of the best tour I ever joined! Love every details of the tour. The old TSS Earnslaw ship was Amazing, still working well. The scenery and the warmth of the farm was so memorable, I want be there again! This is really worth tour to buy. If you're in Queenstown, Please pick this up soon!
We had a fantastic day from the cruise over where the staff were fantastic as was the steamer. Everything was of a very high standard. At the farm we were greeted warmly and our guide/ shepherd who was Peter was lovely. His commentary was funny and informative it did not feel like a mass trip but personal and individual. The afternoon tea was delicious and the sheep dog demonstration and shearing of the sheep was a highlight. The ladies in the shop were a delight and the shop was very reasonably priced. We steamed back to Queenstown a very happy group of Ellen people thank you xxx
Amazing cruise, lovely scenic view and beautiful farm country!
First time on a steamship. Very unique. Cruise across lake to farm took approx 30 mins. Stunning views.
Walter peak farm is a hidden gem surrounded by gorgeous mountains. Farm tour was interesting. Our host is very friendly and welcoming. Loved the sheep shearing and sheep herding demonstration. Getting close and feeding the farm animals was lovely. Morning tea was delicious. Best scones, yum!
Great interest in steamship. Farm tour and tea were very well done. Would recommend it for a gentle alternative to the high adrenalin activities
The tour is awesome and educational . Scones and jam afternoon tea was delicious.
Great tour, great tea and scones. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour there.
