Great family experience

Cruise was great with amazing views. Staff both on the cruise and farm were great, couldn't fault it. Highly recommended for families of young children.

Must visit when you in Queenstown

Until we went there we never realised how hard it is to run and maintain a farm. The tour guide (I think his name was Max) gave us really good tour and explained the whole farm function clearly. We got to see how Farm dogs round up sheep and cattle and got to feed lamb and calf. Could not see sheep shearing when we were there but if you visit during end of winters you may be lucky. Ice Merino is sourced from this farm and they even source to premium brands like Armani.

Loved it

Such an enjoyable and informative day. The cruise to mount Nicholas Farm was breathtaking and the farm tour was fun and very informative. We all learnt so much about sheep, shearing and wool. The food at the end of the tour was delicious. If you do the tour through winter ensure to rug up as it is very cold.
