What to Expect
Travel reference:

Have a dining experience unlike any other at Walter Peak High Country Farm and enjoy a cruise on the TSS Earnslaw steamship!

It is a leisurely 45 minute cruise across Lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak, which gives you plenty of time to explore a piece of living history – the 105 year old TSS Earnslaw. Visit the engine room to see how the giant steam engines work. View the collection of historical photos in the mini-museum, and check out the bridge. Or, if you'd rather, kick back and enjoy a wine or beer or some café food at the on-board Promenade Café and Bar.

Upon arrival at the picturesque Walter Peak High Country Farm, a gourmet chef-prepared dinner at the charming Colonel's Homestead Restaurant awaits. Choose from an expansive array of New Zealand and local produce, from succulent meats to delicious vegetables and salads.

After dinner, an entertaining and informative demonstration gives you a glimpse of life in the high country. On the return cruise, sing along with the ship's pianist or simply breathe in the fresh night air on the moonlit decks.

This iconic gourmet dinner and steamship cruise is one not to miss – book your spot online today!
