Christchurch Sheep Farm Visit

Select Date and Travelers

    What to Expect
    This tour of a working New Zealand sheep farm is set in the tranquil region of North Canterbury. After hotel pickup in Christchurch, you’re driven to the sheep station where you’ll enjoy morning or afternoon tea with a bit of typical ‘kiwi’ hospitality.
    Watch sheep dogs at work as they round up and pen the flock so you can touch and photograph these gentle farm animals. If you wish, have a go at sheep shearing after a demonstration from the pros before returning to Christchurch. 
    If you'd like, combine your visit with wine tasting or jet boating — see options below.
    Winery Visit On your return from the sheep farm, include a visit to one of Canterbury's largest vineyards, located in the heart of the Waipara Valley. Enjoy a short tour of the winery followed by a tasting of unique vintages and aromatic wines at the cellar door. 
    Jet-Boating Tour After your sheep farm visit, embark on an exhilarating Waimakariri River jet-boat ride through Waimakariri Gorge, which boasts exceptional views of the Southern Alps as your captain fishtails and spins through the shallow water.

    We did the sheep farm visit and a wine tour with Sue. She was just excellent -- really engaging, knowledgeable and friendly. She took tourism as seriously as any other dedicated craftsperson.More
