About
In the heart of 350-acres of lush farmland, yet only 10 minutes from Rotorua city centre, you’ll find New Zealand’s Agrodome. Join us for a unique New Zealand farm experience! For over 40 years, visitors from all over the globe have come to the Agrodome to see our world-famous Farm Show starring a cast of talented animals… and you! You’ll hear amazing facts and have a few laughs as you’re introduced to 19 breeds of sheep. After the show you can visit the Farmyard Nursery, which is home to our cutest baby animals who are available for cuddles and photos! Then explore the Agrodome 350-acre working farm on our Farm Tour. During this guided tour, you'll get to hand-feed loads of friendly animals including Romney sheep, cattle, deer, llamas, ostrich, pigs and alpaca!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We wanted something different to break up our many sightseeing and walks, and what a fun time we had at Agrodome! We found the farm show to be highly entertaining for the whole family, it was informative but they made it really fun for everyone. You can even offer to get on stage and participate if you wish! The Farm Tour was really interesting, and I really felt like a child again feeding the animals. Can't recommend this enough.

A very touristy but overall well done experience in Rotorua. I opted for both the sheep shearing and farm tour. The sheep shearing show was very fun, humorous and informative. Afterwards, you had a chance to pet and take pictures with the sheep and dogs on stage. In retrospect, I probably would have opted out of the farm tour as I had much better animal/farm experiences in the South Island. It was a wet day and pretty muddy. On the farm tour you get taken by tractor bus to different parts of the farm where you get the chance to feed sheep, alpalcas and deer. There is also a honey tasting area. At the end of the tour there are hose stations for you to clean off your shoes. Just keep in mind this is a popular touristy experience with bus tours and crowds.

I last visited this 27 years ago and it is still great fun. The performance is very entertaining and weirdly relevant having seen so many sheep in NZ. The shearing was very impressive. The included farm tour is also fun, and you can release your inner child by feeding the animals!

Fun experience. Sat in the front where there were no translation headphones and found it beneficial. Even got to feed baby lambs since there were no children willing to take part in a little on stage game. The show was very educational and the tram around the farm to feed the sheep, alpaca, and deer was fun. Fascinating to watch the sheep dog trials. And VERY excited that the Kiwi Hatchery is now there (though a separate entrance fee and ticket availability.)

We had a great time - the show was especially good.

There was even a baby llama born on the day we visited!!

And we fed deer, sheep and alpacas.

Great fun.

A great visit for those that have not been near a farm before and informative for those that have. Chance to feed the animals was enjoyed by most.
Only down side was paying too much by booking through Trip Advisor. Should have booked direct.

Had a great time here. The show was entertaining and showed 18 different kinds of sheep. The tractor pull farm tour was awesome surprise and even got to hand fead some of the animals. Well worth a visit.

Great demonstrations with both the sheep, dogs, cow and the tractor ride feeding the animals with different information shared about what we were experiencing.
The only problem was that we didn’t understand the tractor ride was shortly after the sheep show. So we had to wait for an hour to take advantage. All your staff had great smiles and eye contact. Happy all round people makes a difference.

Agrodome was great and our American friend loved it, but not impressed with Trip Advisor. I accidentally booked through TripAdvisor and tried to cancel straight away but never heard back from them. I’m a New Zealander and only live 1 hour away from Agrodome so wasn’t planning on paying in US dollars and it cost me $40 more than if I had booked through Agrodome direct.

The visit was awesome, kids loved feeding the animals, and the show was well organized. However, the ticket purchased from Tripadvisor was way too expensive than buying at the counter.
