The Agrodome is a 640-hectare (160-acre) sheep and beef farm which has been opened up to the public. An educational and hands-on experience, you'll get the chance to join in on farming activities as you learn about farming in NZ and meet the farmers and their sheep. Step back 100 years in time at the Woollen Mill where you'll learn about processing wool and maybe even catch a demonstration of carding and spinning. You have the choice to include the award-winning Agrodome Sheep Show or Agrodome Farm Tour during your visit, or you can choose to do both. The Agrodome Sheep Show is an hour-long interactive experience where you'll be introduced to 19 different breeds of sheep. Take part in a live sheep auction and after the show, step outside to see the remarkable Heading Dogs herding sheep and generally having a great time! Join the Agrodome Farm Tour for a taste of life on the farm. You'll be guided by a genuine kiwi (a New Zealander that is, not a bird!) farmer and introduced to a variety of farm animals. There's cattle, deer, llamas and alpacas, even emus and ostriches, and of course more sheep. You'll be able to get close to the animals and even hand feed them if you wish. Next up is a stop at the Organic Education Centre to taste wine, juice and/or honey, while learning about organic fruit growing. The Agrodome is suitable for all ages and makes a great morning or afternoon of family entertainment. Located only 10km (6-miles) from Rotorua with excellent public transport from the city centre, the Agrodome is the essential New Zealand experience. You'd be baahking mad to miss it!

This was such a fun morning! The sheep show was interesting and had some cool information and participation from the crowd. If you're going to visit the Agrodome, though, make sure you take the farm tour! You get to feed the sheep and alpaca and be up close to a lot of great animals. We also got to sample fresh kiwi juice and the local honey. Definitely spend a few hours here!

This show and farm tour has great reviews but I still was worried. Shouldn't have been, it was great. I have adult children 18-22 and they even enjoyed it! We were there in early winter June so the crowds were less. It could get a little less enjoyable if it was overcrowded.
