What you can expect

Step aboard the historic TSS Earnslaw for a quintessential Kiwi experience on Lake Wakatipu and in the high country of Walter Peak. Complete with a delicious gourmet barbecue lunch and a look at New Zealand's farming life, this tour shows you the beautiful country in a stunning lakeside setting.

Your voyage begins with a cruise aboard a century-old steamship, which carries you across the lake from Queenstown. Once you arrive at Walter Peak, relax on the lakeside terrace of the Colonel's Homestead Restaurant and savour the tantalising aromas as the chef gets some great local produce sizzling away on the grill.

The seasonal lunch menu gives you plenty to choose from, with salads, vegetables, and succulent meats cooked on the outdoor rotisserie or grill, along with tasty vegetarian options and a scrumptious dessert. After your lunch, you get some time to explore the history of Walter Peak High Country Farm, join an entertaining farm demonstration, or explore the beautiful lakeside gardens before you cruise back to Queenstown.

Unique experience and well organized. Main problem was no assigned seating, so the mad rush to grab a seat was annoying.
