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.
