Sheepworld is New Zealand’s Sheep and Wool Centre. In twice-daily live demonstrations the dogs round up and bring in the sheep, which are then sorted and shorn. Our Wonderful Wool multimedia exhibition then explains how the fleece is turned into an amazing variety of products, many of which are on sale in our store. There’s also an eco-discovery stroll through native bush, a natural adventure playground, a farmyard full of animals and an on-site cafe. Suitable for all ages.

We loved the drive north to sheep world, and very much enjoyed the dog show . Rob was so informative and funny. It was a delight. Check for a GrabOne coupon.

I've read a few mediocre reviews here, but think they are hogwash. Our family had a complete blast! We have 3 kids under 10, and they've fed animals many time, but never seen anything like this. If you go, do not miss the show (11am or 2pm). It's really the highlight, and extremely informative. The kids learned a lot, and... More

We took our almost 10 year old grandson wholives in the country and thought initially that he was too old for this but he thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon interacting with the animals.
