More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Enjoy the atmosphere of an original shearing shed. The show consists of hand feeding our drysdale Ram ??? Ram-Man??? (who is very photogenic) watching a sheep being shorn, the wool being sorted and pressed. This is followed by a general discussion giving information about sheep shearing, sheep breeds and wool types. Hold a shearing hand piece, old blades shears and Ram horns. During spring you can touch, hold and feed a lamb. Time 30 minutes.

Didn't really want to go to this, but was persuaded to by my sister, and so pleased that I was. I didn't know there was so many different sheep, or wool come to that. It was, all in all, a very informative and entertaining afternoon.

We stayed at the B&B of Gwenda en Pete, who also does the sheepshearing show twice a day. We had a lovely room and breakfast and really enjoyed our three-day stay with them!

Being in Kaikoura at a time when it wasn't crazy busy made this experience extra special. Got great video of us feedling the lambs - one was just 2 weeks old. Adorable! Fascinating to learn about the shearing of sheep and received a complimentary souvenir. Great value!

We read about this little sheep shearing show in the Lonely Planet Guide and I am so glad we went along!! It was fun - we fed and patted the lambs, we learn't about the different types of sheep and the wool they produce. Peter sheared a sheep for us and introduced us to the dogs - very lovely and friendly dogs!! It was all exceptional value for money and for us as a family it was a lot of fun! (children 9, 12 and 14)

This was one of the true highlights of our visit to Kaikoura. Pete the owner was just great and all of the animals were charming and beautiful. Great time - the most gorgeous views in creation.

Go to the Marine Museum close-by. Small and cute.
