    The farm tour was equally enjoyed by our whole family (toddler and adults) the Earnslaw boat ride is about 25 minutes long to Walter Peak farm. Feeding the animals and seeing the sheep herding shearing demonstrations were family favorites. Our three year old especially enjoyed feeding the deer and Highland Cattle.

    Took the afternoon tea and tour of the resident animals package. Boat left the wharf at 12.00pm followed by a scenic trip to Walter Peak farm. Our guide was also the sheep dog handler with both his dogs being English Collies. Animals included Highland cattle, goats, deer, pigs and donkeys which could all be hand fed. Children particularly enjoyed this task. Afternoon tea had many and various treats which became our lunch. The display of the sheep dogs abilities followed demonstrating their importance to the farmers. This is a working sheep farm with over 20,000 sheep. Well worth a visit!

    Was a great day out with two under 2. But would recommend booking the gourmet bbq option as those people got to walk around the farm and see the dog show as well anyway, it’s just that with the farm tour you just get high tea, which was amazing but we would’ve preferred the big meal. Thoroughly recommend!
