Description:

The Agrodome is one on New Zealand's most loved tourist attractions....

The Agrodome is one on New Zealand's most loved tourist attractions. Located just 10 kms north of the Rotorua CBD, the Agrodome is home to the multi award winning Sheep Show . This famous Rotorua attraction features live sheep shearing, 19 breeds of champion rams, cow milking, lamb feeding, dog demonstrations as well as a full New Zealand dog trial. There are three exciting shows a day at 9.30am, 11.00am and 2.30pm. Each Sheep Show is an hour duration. Also join the Farm & Orchard Tour for a hands-on experience with a variety of farm animals including Cattle, Deer, Alpaca, Ostrich, Sheep and much more. You will also visit the Education Centre for honey and kiwifruit juice tasting. The Farm Tours depart daily at 10.40am, 12.10pm, 1.30pm and 3.40pm. Complete your Agrodome experience with a visit to the Woollen Mill and Shearing Shed to see the full process of wool from the Sheep's back to yours. The Farmyard Nursery is also a must see with baby animals available for cuddles and photos year round. After a full-on day of farm fun, ensure that you grab a souvenir to remember your visit from our fabulous gift store the Dog and Whistle . With a great range of New Zealand, Rotorua and Agrodome quality souvenirs you find something you can treasure forever. This all weather attraction is open 365 days of the year from 8.30am to 5.00pm.

This was an excursion from a bus tour of New Zealand. Unfortunately all we had time to see was the very brief exhibition of a working sheepdog. Then went into hall for the sheep show. This is very interesting and has some humour. Did not get the chance to see the farm, or other animals. Back on the bus and... More

There was heavy rain because a tropical cyclone was on its way, and there were lots of tour groups hanging around waiting for the sheep show to begin. The reception area was crowded, making it difficult to get to the counter to buy tickets. Once inside the huge show area, it was easier to walk around, interact with the lambs,... More

We did the farm show and the tour combo. Both truly excellent. We got to feed sheep cows and alpacas plus taste some kiwi fruit honey. Will definitely do it again.

Been before and now bringing own kids to watch this show, never a disappointing and in fact it's as interesting and interactive as ever! Kids going on the stage, feeding baby sheep and collecting wool. Horse and carriage ride was a pleasant surprise too!

Was fun for the kids and got to see lots of sheep. Not much food available on site. The seats on the tractor are not friendly for disabled people. No one there to help them. Otherwise nice trip around for the children to feed the animals

We thought this may be a typical 'local' show with sheep. Well we wee most definitely wrong. The 'Shepherd' was a great showman, welcoming the audience in their respecive native tongues. he was informative and yet humour push too. I will never look at sheep in the same way again! Thank you for the great experience and entertainment!

Didn't know there were so many different kinds of sheep! Fun to watch - especially for the kids. Sheep shearing, cow milking and the working dogs are the best.

A typically touristy outing. Rather manufactured in its presentation. Ok for a short visit but if you want tractor rides etc you have to pay a premium.
