|About these ratings|
The Walter Peak High Country Farm is more than just a petting zoo, which is what most "farm attractions" tend to be. The experience begins with a cruise across the picturesque Lake Wakatipu. Once you get to the idyllic farm, you can take a tour, watch sheep-shearing demonstrations, feed farm animals, enjoy an outdoor BBQ lunch (or morning/afternoon tea), and walk through flowering gardens.
Recent visitors say this farm experience is truly delightful. One TripAdvisor user says there is a "nice BBQ lunch, out in the clean fresh air. (I didn't want to leave). Then a lovely cruise back to Queenstown." Another traveler says that if you don't like exhilarating activities (presumably like bungee jumping), then coming here is a must. This TripAdvisor user goes on to say that "a lovely 8-day-old lamb was passed around so that we could all have a cuddle and our photo taken."
Prices range based on the tour provider, but admission for the cruise and farm experience is about 95 NZD ($79 USD) for adults and 37 NZD ($31 USD) for children. Keep in mind that this attraction is only open between the months of January through May and September through December.
