Walter Peak High Country Farm

Relive the nostalgia and elegance of days gone by on this scenic cruise across Lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak High Country Farm where you will gain an insight into life on a typical 'Kiwi' high country farm.

Following the 40 minute outward voyage from Queenstown across Lake Wakatipu, disembark at Walter Peak High Country Farm to experience NZ farming life.

Wander through the beautiful lakeside gardens and enjoy a country-style morning tea at the Colonel's Homestead, surrounded by views of the lake and mountains.

Be taken on a walking tour of the farmyard to view sheep, red deer and Scottish Highland cattle, watch sheep shearing and see sheep dogs working stock.

Afterwards there is time to view a wool spinning demonstration before re-boarding the TSS Earnslaw for a return cruise to Queenstown.

Cruise concludes approximately 3.5 hours after commencement back at Steamer Wharf, Queenstown.
