The TSS Earnslaw is an Edwardian vintage twin screw steamer who took her maiden voyage on 18 October 1912. The vessel is now featured as one of Queenstown’s main attractions, taking travellers on a leisurely 90-minute cruise across the picturesque Lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak High Country Station.
The Walter Peak High Country Station is a fully functioning sheep farm and native wonderland that sits on the south-western shoreline of Lake Wakatipu. Stroll through the beautiful lakeside gardens and experience the best of New Zealand’s high-country cuisine at The Colonel’s Homestead, an award-winning dining experience like no other. With agriculture as one of New Zealand’s biggest industries, farming is a way of life. Visitors to the farm get an authentic taste of this lifestyle and breathe in the fresh country air.
