Relive the elegance of old-time travel aboard the TSS "Earnslaw," considered the grandest vessel ever to cruise Lake Wakatipu. Board the 1912 coal-powered steamship in Queenstown, crossing the lake on a narrated trip to Walter Peak High Country Farm, and soak up alpine views of the Remarkables mountain range along the way.

Upon arrival at the farm, get settled in the Colonel’s Homestead for a buffet dinner of local specialties, including meat and seafood barbecued on the outdoor grill. Supplement your meal with an ample selection of antipasto salads and vegetables, then sample from an array of irresistible homemade desserts and a New Zealand cheeseboard accompanied by freshly brewed tea and coffee.

After dinner, watch a sheepdog show and sheepshearing demonstration, or stay behind and relax with a drink — available for purchase at the bar — before returning to Queenstown on the TSS "Earnslaw."

Still good in the Autumn

Great food, but some items ran out, the cruise was nice, but surely better before daylight savings 😀
We thoroughly enjoyed...

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience. This was the perfect end to our honey moon. The cruise to the farm was gorgoues, the food was the best buffet we have eaten and the sheepdog show was cool too. Highly recommend. We felt our cup was so full after this trip
Unforgettable, a highlight of our honeymoon

The setting both inside and outside the restaurant, and the most beautiful food - just absolutely faultless. Plus the excellent way it was presented for buffet... best ever buffet we've ever had

Great experience
, Jan 2021
The steam boat ride & meal was fantastic, great experience with a boat of that history The food at Walter peck was 10 out of 10 , at $110 per person it’s way to cheep you could easily double that price for that experience & quality , the staff at Walter Peck were fantastic, especially the maitre d’ at the restaurant. Thanks so much Craig & Yolande Thompson 👍

Boat ride was nice. Queenstown is beautiful. About 30m ride to the farm. Dinner was buffet style. Quality seemed about the same as a cruise ship. Ordered some drinks but we were done with our meals before they made it to our table. Enjoyed the sheep demos and walking around on the farm. Nice evening.

Two Thumbs Up!
, Mar 2020
The entire experience was wonderful! I had beautiful weather and the boat cruise to Walter Peak was lovely. The food on site was delicious. There was a large selection and something for everyone. The grounds were fun to walk around and the farm show at the end was a fun way to cap off the evening. Great for families or couples.
Ok but not impressive.
, Mar 2020
The boat trip was pleasant. The food service was good. But the meats, especially the beef provided a real tooth test; tough and hard to chew. The desserts were rather mediocre. Nothing was there that struck me as really good. The brief sheep shearing demonstration was interesting, but was just a brief part of the excursion. If I had paid $30 or $40 (USD) I would have been satisfied, but I would not have chosen this trip if I had it to do again
