The Farm Tour and Sheep Shearing Show ( Rotorua Heritage Farm)

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!

Highlights

  • Experience what a typical New Zealand working farm is like
  • Guided 1.5 hour tour with educational information about the farm
  • See a wide variety of native wildlife and hand feed different farm animals
  • Authentic sheep shearing demonstration with a talk by New Zealand’s top shearer
  • Must see, amusing sheep dog show conducted by a dog handler
  • Great location in the main tourism area of Rotorua

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!

Up close and personal

I came with a group of friends and their family and it was definitely very enjoyable for us all. I've been to the other farm tour & sheep sheering in Rotorua (the bigger one) and I find this tour much more personal, because of the smaller group and a smaller but closer sheep sheering stage. The staff (Katie and a guy named Win-something) were very friendly and they genuinely loved to show us around. The farm isn't very big but you get to feed a few of the animals, especially good if you have kids. Andrew and Queen (the sheepdog) were very professional and entertaining. Would be good if that part was slightly longer as I'm sure Queen had a lot more to show-off.

a great place

It was very enjoyable- a relaxed ride through the farm seeing different animals and touching some we have never done before. A big heads up to Winiata our guide- a wealth of knowledge and down to earth so all could understand. I would certainly recommend this to anyone especially families with kids who love animals
