We booked our tour at Murray & Sue’s Paua Bay farm based on the magnificent Trip Advisor reports we had read and we’re glad we did. Actually, we learned more and had much more fun than we had anticipated. Right from the moment Bruce (Murray’s father-in-law) met us in Akaroa and drove us up to the farm, we felt like part of the family. Murray began with his recollection of the family’s farming history, giving valuable insights into the struggles of farm life in early NZ. The shearing demonstration given by Hannah (Murray’s daughter-in-law) was amazing (3min 30 sec.) and watching the dogs round up the sheep and drive them over 100 yards to come and see us was unbelievable. Finally it was time to relax with the family, sipping tea, eating homemade scones and enjoying the beautiful gardens and ocean views. Without a doubt, our visit to Murray & Sue’s was definitely the best excursion during our cruise.
