Stretching out from the shores of Queenstown are the pure waters of Lake Wakatipu. Board the heritage steamship TSS Earnslaw, and set out across the lake. More than 100 years old, your boat is packed with history. It is the only coal-fired steamship still carrying passengers in the Southern Hemisphere. Sit back, relax and admire the dramatic scenery of lush, green hillsides topped with jagged peaks.

Land at Walter Peak High Country Farm, and hear about its history and the founding-farms of the area. Within the pleasant environs of the Colonel’s Homestead Restaurant, enjoy the array of freshly prepared food in your buffet meal. Grilled meats, seafood, fresh salads and seasonal vegetables all feature on the menu. After your meal, those with a sweet tooth can indulge in a wide selection of desserts.

Once you have satisfied your appetite, take a seat for the live farm demonstrations. These give you a fascinating insight into the operations of the station in an informative, yet entertaining way. Feel the fresh breeze in your face as you return to Queenstown by steamship.

Lovely staff. Great food. Son had food allergies and was given extra attention to ensure he was safe when selecting dishes. Highly recommended.

Value for money. Board early for best seats. However, during the dinner, some people were on to their third serving whilst others had only started their first. This led to food running out before people could even taste it. That is not ok.
