What to Expect
Your evening begins at the Steamer Wharf in Queenstown, where you board the vintage TSS "Earnslaw" for a scenic cruise on Lake Wakatipu. Cross the lake while learning about the region and its history from your guide’s live commentary. While on the water, soak in views of the Remarkables mountain range.  Upon arrival at Walter Peak High Country Farm, settle in for a buffet feast replete with seafood and meat barbecued on an outdoor grill. Your meal includes a New Zealand cheeseboard, antipasti, desserts, and coffee and tea.  After dinner, you're treated to a sheepdog show and a sheep-shearing demonstration. Enjoy free time for a drink or two at the bar (own expense) before heading back on the steamer for the journey back to Queenstown.

We were staying slightly out of town but managed to get free parking quite easily and walk a short distance to the quayside. The TSS Earnslaw is a beautiful old steam ship and being able to see into the engine room with the stokers working away was fascinating. There was no rush

16:00 start. Fabulous old steam ship, fascinating watching the guys in the engine room, I wouldn’t like to be the stoker as he worked hard. Stunning old colonial house for the BBQ meal. Meal was excellent and plenty of choice. Sheep shearing demo and one man and his dog

We enjoyed a terrific BBQ at Walter Peak Station. The food was abundant, delicious and plentiful so you could go back for second but leave room for dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed the sheep shearing and sheep dog demonstration, too!
