#5 of 61 in Outdoors in Rotorua
Experience life on a New Zealand farm, learn about traditional farming and herding skills, and meet the friendly and cuddly animals at Agrodome. Founded by world-champion sheep shearer Godfrey Bowen back in 1971, the 160 hectare (350 acre) complex serves as both a popular tourist attraction and a fully operating sheep and cattle farm. From the shows displaying various sheep breeds and the clever herding dogs, to the shearing museum and animal nursery, the farm showcases all aspects of rural living in New Zealand. At the farm's kiosk you can find freshly brewed coffee and a selection of snacks. Several ticket packages are available, which you can purchase online.

  • Watched sheep line up and learned how many varieties of sheep there are! The presentation was well done and held everyone's interest. The sheep shearing and dog herding demonstrations were impressive  more »
  • Excellent morning, enjoyed both the show and the farm tour! My UK visitor enjoyed the animal contact on the farm tour. Well worth the money!  more »
  • The presentation on types of sheep and shearing is well presented, humorous and informative. Excellent for all age groups. Be prepared for just how many people there are in the presentation area.  more »
