Enjoyed a walk around the property, as well as some homemade fruit sorbet and ice cream. Very enjoyable. The shop offers a variety of woolen items as well as NZ touristy knickknacks also.

Sheep world gives you an interesting and fun show how sheep farmers works with well trained dogs helping the farmer to bring in the sheep. You will also learn a lot about the sheep handling and the wool.
