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.

The dog show is just amazing. Make sure you get there around 10.30 am not to miss the 11am show. John presented an excellent show with Boy and Sam the two dogs. Sheep shearing, feeding, a real hands-on experience. You will learn everything, amazing facts around the whole story. Kids just love it. The cafe is nice, there's a little playground. A nice half-day out, you can spend the rest of the day in Omaha, Goat Islands or Orewa to chill out.
The whole thing suggests a family business rather than a tourist attraction. So friendly.

I was a bit worried about paying money just to see a few sheep but was not disappointed! Learn't so much about sheep dogs and the way of working the farm. Shows use new sheep and are not 'staged'. Plenty of other animals there too. Fantastic, knowledgable staff. Cafe excellent with playground for children. Took our two younger children but will return with our teenager :)

We returned to Sheepworld again and were not disappointed. Absolutely loved it. I know some people have said it is a bit over priced but we disagree. The shows are informative and fun and the animals are fantastic. The highlight was bottle feeding the lambs at the end of the show. Our 14 month old had a blast looking and touching so many different friendly animals. Great staff and service too. I would highly recommend
