Walter Peak High Country Farm Tour and Cruise from Queenstown
Reviewed by: mel h, July 2016
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.

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

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!
