Overview

Sheepworld is New Zealand’s Sheep and Wool Centre. In twice-daily live demonstrations the dogs round up and bring in the sheep, which are then sorted and shorn. Our Wonderful Wool multimedia exhibition then explains how the fleece is turned into an amazing variety of products, many of which are on sale in our store. There’s also an eco-discovery stroll through native bush, a natural adventure playground, a farmyard full of animals and an on-site cafe. Suitable for all ages.

We went there just to see and feed the animals (we didn’t see the show) that’s a fun day out. Really friendly animals, and there is heaps to see. Really nice and helpful staff. Loved it!

You must make it to the show otherwise there’s not much to see. The show was very informative, good for family with small kids!

This is a really wonderful experience full of information about sheep farming. The show includes, dog handling, sheep shearing and lamb feeding. Great show well presented and very enjoyable. Two shows a day starting at 11am and 2pm. Highly recommended.

Took our grandchildren (age 4 & 9), and was blown away by experience. The children were encouraged to participate in sheep sheering, bottle feeding and petting. A great day out for all of us.

The main animal park is worth the visit as its very interactive. The sheep demonstration is not great. Compared to the Agrodome at Rotarua, there's too much talking and not enough happening; as a result all the kids at our visit got a bit bored...More
