It's a very worthy 15 min. stop between the seal visit and the bbq. The show is very informative and interactive. Loved the different whool demonstration with samples and specially loved the dogs wandering about.

This show was $12 to get into and was entertaining and informative. Though it barely lasted 30 minutes, so I thought the pricing was high for what you got.

What a great little show, Peter has got this down to a tee! Do yourself favour and see it if passing through Kaikoura. We also fed a 2 day old lamb and petted some 3 month old lambs too. Just great!

Host was friendly. Casual atmosphere. Host presented information in a very interesting way, explained the sheep industry, gave the kids small samples, got to try lanolin lotion, bottle fed lambs, pic opportunities. Fun for kids and adults.

The Point is a small, family run farm that offers daily demonstrations of sheep shearing. They also provide some background on the history and types of sheep found in NZ. The owners are helpful, patient and very willing for us to interact with the sheep!
