Glenorchy Animal Experience
The kids will love this delightful, fun encounter with a wide variety of friendly farm animals – in an amazing setting! Feed and pat and watch our quiet and friendly goats, miniature horses, alpacas, llamas, sheep, donkey, cows, bunnies, guinea pigs and more – get really close for great photo opportunities!
Make an afternoon of it, explore the nearby Lagoon Track, walk through the paddocks, watch a sheep shearing demonstration and experience NZ farm life up close.
Situated just two kilometres out of town, set on an established third generation family farm the views are spectacular; you see as far as the lake and the Rees and Dart Valleys, Humbolt mountain range and the wetland.
While you can explore our farm via a purpose-built gravel track you can also wander through a large open paddock if you wish.
Sheep shearing demonstration: another great attraction at Glenorchy Animal Experience is the daily sheep shearing demonstration; come and watch this amazing skill and learn about shearing and wool processing.
Lots to see and do, rain or shine: we have purpose-built facilities that allow you to enjoy some of our animals even on a wet day, plenty of farm related artefacts and curios to look at and a small shop to purchase a souvenir.
A fabulous day out for all ages where you can relax and experience NZ farm life up close!
