Discover New Zealand's iconic working farm life with an exciting visit to the Rotorua Heritage Farm – an essential Kiwi experience and a must do for visitors and locals alike!
A trip to New Zealand is not complete without a traditional farm experience, and The Rotorua Heritage Farm has been established to showcase just that!
Breathe in the fresh air as you enter and are greeted by a typical farm environment with covered trailers where your exciting 1.5-hour guided farm tour begins.
You’ll love interacting with all the friendly animals – make sure you have your camera ready to snap a selfie! There are so many different varieties, you’ll be spoiled for choice - see alpacas, llamas, goats, sheep, cattle, ponies, deer, ostrich, pigs, chicken, rabbits and more. Your friendly guide will provide educational information, and you can even hand feed the animals!
The sheep shearing demonstration is a highlight, set in our traditional heritage farm shearing shed. One of New Zealand’s top shearers will enlighten you with an educational talk about sheep shearing and you are welcome to ask questions, get up close to touch the wool and take photos.
To top off the experience, you'll be entertained by an amusing sheepdog show conducted under the instruction of an experienced dog handler – it really is a must see!
This is a fantastic idea for all ages, and a must do Kiwi experience!
