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.
