Owner description: 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.

Sheep and dog show very entertaining - a must see. This was our second visit and we were well pleased it was fine this time so we were able to wander around the whole farm (although they did cater well for a rainy day with umbrellas for visitors). Cafe excellent, kids loved it - great visit!

“Wow what an amazing place to take your family :)”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We had such a fantastic day out with our family, the entertainment of the live show and sheering the sheep was great. I actually got to have a go at sheering. We fed the eels and all the farm animals. Our kids got to pat and hold the animals in the petting zoo and out on the farm. The showmen are great and fantastic entertainers, they made us feel so welcome. We stayed most of the day. We had lunch in the cafe on site and the food was amazing. Thanks to ROB and John for a fun day out

We are pleased that you thought that our shop was great. It's a shame that you did not attend our main attraction, our hour-long sheep and dog show, roughly half of which is demonstrations of the dogs at work and their training. Hopefully you will visit us again to enjoy this and rate us accordingly.

“Black Sheep Cafe”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Fabulous Food and Great staff. Have returned a few times as the menu is always changing. The Cafe is the best part of Sheepworld. Food is very well priced and superb quality.

“Family Entertainment”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

A great place to take foreign visitors or just a place to stop with the family whilst on a trip to Auckland. Much more than just sheep, they have a great cafe and also a petting zoo for the kids. Very good value.
