What more could we ask for? Great vistas as we chugged up Wakapitu to Walter Peak for a delicious BBG lunch which followed our sheep shearing and herding demos. Jenny, Vince and Ave were wonderful when someone (me) was so disappointed to have been relegated...More

Loved this original steamboat. Like stepping back in time..the smell of coal, the mini museum..the views.. it was all lovely...Walter peak sheep shearing demo was informative and bbq lunch was the best. This is one of the highlights of our trip to queenstown...highly recommend it.

This is a ride on an old steamboat (1912) for about an hour to a wonderful sheep farm where you are shown how they herd sheep, how they shear sheep, etc, then taken into a beautifull building for a fabulous bbq buffet lunch.
