Attraction details
Owner description: Enjoy the atmosphere of an original shearing shed. The show consists of hand feeding our drysdale Ram ??? Ram-Man??? (who is very photogenic) watching a sheep being shorn, the wool being sorted and pressed. This is followed by a general discussion giving information about sheep shearing, sheep breeds and wool types. Hold a shearing hand piece, old blades shears and Ram horns. During spring you can touch, hold and feed a lamb. Time 30 minutes.

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.

We turned up on the off chance of the late afternoon show but unfortunately it had been cancelled for a last minute emergency - however the owners were very nice to show us around, give the kids some of the wool sheared earlier in the day and show the sheep in the field which came up and nibbled from their hands - even this was worth the visit

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!

Such an amazing experience. Fabulous hospitality and super interactive. We loved learning all about the wool and the sheep. We even got to bottle feed a little lamb which was absolutely adorable.

Went today with a couple of mates from the uk to show them around. What a great setup he has. Not only did he show the kiwi hospitality with they way he trusts everyone, but also with a lot of hands on experiences that they don't otherwise get, it should be made a lot more public as it was one tour I would recommend because of how good he is with looking after he people, thanks again mate and I will be back!!
