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.

My grandson aged7 and I had a great time at Sheepworld. He didn't want to leave and found the show and interaction with all the friendly animals really enjoyable.

The show was very interesting and amazing to see how the farmer and the dogs worked so intelligently on the task of bring the sheep in. I loved watching the behaviour of the sheep and the dogs. the farmer knew so much stuff. Thanks

Thoroughly enjoyed the live demonstrations and atmosphere. A real farm feel with the opportunity to be up close to sheep and other farm animals. The feeding of the lambs with baby bottles was delightful! Angus was very knowledgable and could answer any question we threw...More
