Full description
This half-day activity begins and concludes with a 45-minute cruise across Queenstown’s Lake Wakatipu onboard the historic TSS Earnslaw. Spend a few hours enjoying the culinary delights at Walter Peak High Country Station, including an entertaining farm demonstration the whole family will enjoy. Feel free to take advantage of the extensive lay-out of this incredible steam-ship – she is a floating museum of her own history, and you are more than welcome to enter the engine room where you can watch our hardy coal-stokers as they keep this beautiful lady of the lake gliding across the aqua waters of Lake Wakatipu. Overlooking Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown’s incredible alpine scenery, the Colonel’s Homestead at Walter Peak is the perfect place to spend a beautiful day in Central Otago. It’s colonial architecture and sweeping grounds evoke the elegance of a bygone era. Spend your time wandering the award-winning gardens, or saying hello to the animals that call the station home. The BBQ Buffet includes salads, vegetables and succulent local meats cooked on the outdoor rotisserie or grill. There is a wide range of desserts on offer, including a vast array of fresh bread and cheese.

It was a lovely blue dome day on Lake Wakatipu, one of the most glorious places on the planet. The BBQ lunch was amazing, particularly the Cardrona lamb and Canterbury pork. The salad selection was wide and varied and really tasty. The killer was the deserts - they were brilliant and I knew by dinner time that night that I had overeaten at lunch. Memorable experience for my wife's 80th birthday.

We had an amazing time cruising across Lake Wakatipu on a stunning blue sky day on the SS Earnslaw. This followed by a fabulous BBQ lunch with tasty salads, tender meat & delicious desserts in a stunning location. The staff were excellent, the sheep dog demonstration slick & the weather wonderful - will happily recommend to any visitors to Queenstown!
