“Deffinitely must go to, its fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

When I looked at the other two negative reviews they could not have been more wrong! The staff in the shop are very helpful and will also give advice on good value products. The show which you deffinitely should try, is amazing and the shearer himself is so informative but also fun for people of any age! I really hope they stay supported as its a great place for the family to go and not to far away from the town!

“Very Entertaining sheep shearing and handling. Great for kids and grown-ups alike.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

I visited the Yallingup Shearing Shed with my wife and two kids, 5 and 2 years. All of us enjoyed the 90-minute demonstration of sheep shearing and handling, sheep dogs and feeding the small lambs. Steve, the owner of the sheep farm, took us through all aspects of his farm with credibility and with great humour.

Older kids were given different tasks than what was assigned to younger kids, but everyone had the opportunity to see, pet, feed and experience some of the 4000 sheep that they have in the farm. There was also enough information and talk to keep the grown-ups listening and observing. Overall, a great family visit in case you are anywhere close to Margaret River region.

The shop has a good selection of woollen products, but I wasn't very impressed by it. The shearing shed is the reason to stop by unless you really need a sweater, woollen socks or lamb-skin UGG boots.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Poorly presented place with expensive sheepskin gear. Almost felt sorry for the animals there...

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

While waiting for the shearing demo, they give you pellets to feed the ewes outside. It was overall a very informative and fun session and I found myself inevitably comparing other shearing sessions at other attractions to this. Thumbs up for the owner's showmanship and wonderful antics to get the as many people participating in the show as possible. *wink to those who had to 'clean the stalls'*

“Great time!”

Must try if you have kids. Very interesting presentation on sheep rearing and shearing. Presenter was very conscious to let all kids to have opportunity to feed the young sheep. Highly recommended. Thanks for the great time!!
