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. If you have any dietary restrictions, please let the supplier know directly so we can safely accommodate your requests.

Absolutely wonderful trip across beautiful lake Wakatipu to Walterpeak Station definitely put this on your must do list when in Queenstown. Wonder service and superb food. To top it off the lovely lady in the booking office went above and beyond when my wife forgot to purchase the magnets she wanted so she rang the gift shop and had one of the staff put them on the boat when it came back across to Queenstown and they were there waiting when we went back to pick them up. Unfortunately I didn’t ask her name but if she ever reads this review just know how much we appreciated you doing that

A great day out!! The boat trip was really good. The Walter Peak BBQ was delicious & the gardens & country lodge were absolutely beautiful, & the staff were all so friendly. The best day out I've had out for ages. I flew down to Queenstown just for the day, &, I chose a great activity to do for the say was so relaxing at Walter Peak, I truly didn't want to leave!! I highly recommend to anyone thinking about doing this to do it. The best $129 I've spent in ages!! I went on my own, but everyone waz so friendly on the trip, so don't not go because you are on your own.

We absolutely loved this trip! The fact you can go in and see how the boat works and watch them shovel the coal into the fires! We had lunch at Walter peak which was amazing! We walked around and seen the animals and the amazing gardens and then back on the boat to relax back to Queenstown
