Highlights

  • Dinner included
Launched in 1912, the TSS Earnslaw is the grandest vessel ever to ply the waters of Lake Wakatipu. Today, the TSS Earnslaw is believed to be the only coal-fired passenger-carrying vessel still operating in the southern hemisphere. Relive the elegance of travel in the early 1900s as you cruise across Lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak Country Farm and take in Queenstown’s magnificent alpine scenery.

Disembark at the Walter Peak Country Farm, for a gourmet BBQ buffet dinner showcasing New Zealand specialties at the Colonel’s Homestead. Sample an expansive array of New Zealand’s traditional cuisine from the buffet including meat and seafood from the outdoor grill, antipasto selection salads and vegetables. Then finish your meal with our irresistible selection of homemade desserts, a New Zealand cheeseboard and freshly brewed tea and coffee. A range of wines and other beverages are available for purchase. The resident pianist will provide background music and the open fire creates a cozy atmosphere in the cooler months.

After dinner, you can choose to join a farm tour or relax in the bar before returning to Queenstown on the TSS Earnslaw.

The steam ship was so cool and the view of the mountains and local geography was awesome. Once on the farm it was a cornucopia of wonderful smells and tastes of the food, which appeared endless. The variety was amazing. Then there was the entertainment of the border collies. The dogs operated with impressive speed and control from the unspoken commands of the trainer. They sheep were then sheared before our eyes in moments. Finally the steam ship back with great company with fellow travelers.

Exceptional cruise on the TSS Earnslaw and a wonderful, delicious meal at the Walter Peak Lodge with the sheep shearing show a bonus. I would recommend this highly.
