Follow up your wonderfully enjoyable TSS Earnslaw cruise on Lake Wakatipu with a warm kiwi welcome and a taste of New Zealand's traditional farming lifestyle with this experience at Walter Peak High Country Farm,*that is situated in an idyllic location on the lake's southern shores. Upon arriving at the farm, you'll be greeted by your rural host as you disembark and take you on a guided walking tour of the farmyard. You'll be able to visit the holding pens to feed the sheep and deer, and also get up close to the authentic Scottish Highland Cattle before strolling through the lakeside gardens headed towards the Wool Shed for a traditional high country afternoon tea of scones, cakes and slices that are freshly baked at the farm.

Later, follow the farmer to the shearing shed where you'll be able to observe the trained farm dogs as they round up sheep on the paddocks of the hills, before hopping back on board the TSS Earnslaw and heading back to Queenstown to cap off an authentic and wholesome colonial-style day!
