Our visit to Walter Peak Farm minus the Gourmet BBQ Lunch starts with a breezy raining day. Despite the rain and the breezy wind, our heart feel warm by the setting up of the event and the most welcome tea/coffee, scone & cakes. The surrounding are totally breathtaking. Our return journey on the ship were equally unforgettable. Pianos played by... More

We took the evening cruise aboard the TSS Earnslaw which is still coal fueled (you can watch the crew shoveling coal in the engine room) to the farm for dinner! Very civilized to travel on this beautiful boat that was built the same year as the Titanic. The ride was complete with champagne and live baby grand piano music. The... More

Lovely boat ride and approaching the place it was like no other farm I have ever seen. The grounds were so beautifully manicured. Loved this buffet and was well organized based on seating and releasing to the dining hall. We got own table so it felt like separate dining. Sheep shearing was fun and informative. Amazing to see how quick... More

The food was fabulous, especially the perfectly cooked meats. But, there were a few tours there the night we went that made the experience feel crammed and rushed. We did have our own table, which helped. The boat ride was lovely, with lovely views.

I only ate meat. It was so good. Mrs got upset that I didn't put any vegetables on my plate. This was meat heaven. Get on the old boat and eat the meat.

A most pleasant journey up Lake Wakatipu aboard the restored steamer Earnslaw. Between viewing the stunning landscape and watching the workings of the steam engines, the short trip went by quickly. The activities at Walter Peak Station included watching sheep shearing, the dogs rounding up sheep and just marvelling at the views. The BBQ lunch was a gourmet's delight -... More

The highlight of our weekend visit was the TSS Earnslaw steam cruise followed by Walter Peak Farm and BBQ lunch. The buffet lunch was to DIE for! The farm show was the most average I've ever seen... a walk around the farm would have been nice BUT the lunch and cruise is what you pay for. The grounds are stunning... More

Whilst this tourist attraction caters to large numbers for meals it is very well organised. Lunch is a variety of barbecued meats, such as lamb, beef, sausages, sweet breads and so on, with baked vegetables and salads served in a smorgasbord style. Several different condiments are also provided, such as freshly made mint sauce for the lamb. There is a... More
