“Great show”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Our nieces loved this place as they got to play with baby goats, lambs & young fawns. They also got to go up on stage and have their photo taken with all the sheep breeds and pat the dogs. The show was great and very funny and entertaining for both young and old. They cater for a number of nationalities with headphones for them to listen to the show in their language.

Well worth a visit.

“Funny Show, good experience”

I and my parents visited there for viewing sheep show. The show was funny and translated Japanese, Chinese, Korean. So my parents were poor at English, but they enjoyed show. I saw various sheep and was explained. Various show was made me funny, and dog show was excellent. The show was a little simple, but very funny.

“Who knew sheep, cows and dogs could be so interesting!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

I really didn't expect too much from this attraction and wondered why such a place would win so many awards. But after going to it, I now completely understand! The presenter was very funny, the people friendly, the show (which included 12 different types of sheep, sheep shearing, cow milking, dog herding and more) was highly informative, fast paced, surprising, interactive and very funny. Definitely worth a visit - whether a family, couple, friends, solo or business. Also, the NZ souvenirs were outrageously cheap but of high quality.

“New Zealand Coach Tour”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

This is an attraction for the whole family. Very well laid out and accessible to all including wheelchairs and child strollers/prams. The baby animals will appeal to children of all ages. The sheepdog trial is great as is the sheep display and shearing demonstration inside the big arena.So many different breeds of sheep and all are named according to breed. A good attraction to visit
