Farming in the New Zealand high country is a way of life – and it’s one you can get up close to at Walter Peak.
Situated on picturesque Lake Wakatipu’s south-western shores, Walter Peak High Country Farm is an idyllic place to spend a relaxing few hours. The farm tour itself is a wonderful, interactive experience, with something to keep everyone entertained and happy.
You will be greeted by our rural host upon disembarking the TSS Earnslaw, who will lead you on a walking tour of the farmyard. The first stop is the holding pens, where you can help feed the sheep and deer and even get up close to the Scottish Highland Cattle. Then a stroll through the lakeside gardens takes you to the charming Colonel’s Homestead for morning or afternoon tea.
You will be guided to the shearing shed where you can watch the remarkable skill with which the farm dogs round up sheep from the hill paddocks. Our farmer will demonstrate how to shear a sheep before you reboard the TSS Earnslaw for your cruise back to Queenstown.
