Overview

Cruise around Lake Wakatipu on a vintage steamboat, the TSS Earnslaw, before disembarking for a taste of farm life at Walter Peak Farm. Combine these experiences to create an ideal experience in the New Zealand countryside.

Cruise on the TSS Earnslaw, a vintage steamship built in 1912. Known as "the Lady of the Lake," she once provided an essential link between isolated farming communities along Lake Wakatipu. At 157 feet (48 metre), she was once the biggest boat on the lake, carrying passengers, sheep, cattle, post, and supplies.

Walter Peak High Country is the perfect place to relax for a few hours, situated on Lake Wakatipu's southwestern shore. After arriving from the boat, take a walking tour of the farmyard, seeing the holding pens, where you can help feed the sheep and deer, and even get up close to Scottish Highland Cattle. Stroll through the lakeside gardens to the Colonel's Homestead for tea.

Afterward, head to the shearing shed, where you watch farm dogs round up sheep from the hill paddocks, and then watch the farmer shear a sheep. At the end of your visit, board the TSS Earnslaw to cruise back to Queenstown.
