  • Been here twice upon my return to NZ. Great place to take kids but equally as fun and interesting for adults. The shearing is interesting and watching the sheep dog work is great. The eco trail...  more »
  • Worth a visit if you are in the area and not going to be going anywhere near Rotarua. The shearing show was good although for youngsters a bit long winded. The shearing show in itself is 1 hour...  more »
  • Fantastic stop for our family. Would recommend going for the show. The kids loved feeding the baby sheep and petting the other animals. Stay for lunch! The cafe was amazing with some of the best lamb sausage I've ever had. Super friendly people.
  • We only visited the cafe but it was perfect for our family as it had a fully fenced area with a playground, a tractor, 2 play houses, plenty of room to run around and several of the animals were able to come up to the fence which the kids loved. The smoothie and the hot chips were delicious! Will definitely be back, perfect spot to stop en route to Auckland.
  • one hour drive from east Auckland, easy find location. We like the animals and 1 hr show. Kids really enjoyed keep feeding the animals. Could be better if the playground is larger. good place where you can stay around 4 hrs.
  • Great place to visit. Close to Auckland. Large sprawling location. Excellent sheep show twice a day. Fantastic new cafe with a great german flavour. Definitely worth a visit
  • A wonderful outdoor experience for the family. The kids had a blast feeding the animals on the farm and learning more about the the sheepdogs, sheep sheering and wool. The facilities are well maintained and all the animals are in good health.
