We visited this farm because of the reviews and must say it was well worthwhile. From the authentic owners to the animals who you can safely interact with, no matter what your age!You can spend as long or as little time as you wish here. We took lots of photos - selfies included with the animals and felt very safe and relived our childhood. Would encourage better local signage to help people find this great attraction.

Adorable animals and gorgeous scenery!
Nov 2020 • Couples
We spent a delightful morning here and loved every bit of it. The animals were so friendly and gentle. You can tell they are very happy and well cared for. My favourite were the alpacas, the donkey and the lambs that were so tame they ran right up to us!

The owner was great to chat to and really welcoming. He even brought Frank the Clydesdale horse over to us when he noticed he wasn’t in the paddock.
Couldn’t disagree more with the previous negative review. We had plenty of interaction with the animals and thought it was great value, considering it’s a full day pass and you can stay as long as you want. Definitely worth a visit for any animal lovers!

Very disappointed
Nov 2020 • Family
The farm was very small and very overpriced.
Lack of animal interaction.
Walking around the farm and feeding the animals was the only interaction

At our farm you get as much out of the Experience as you like. We unfortunately do not quite understand your review but read into it that it wasn't your thing and hence you didn't get anything out of it. A shame really. Overpriced? Over 100 handreared interactive animals with charming characters, a view many can only dream of, lambs that allow you to pat them etc etc... we would be curious to know what your expectations were to leave you so disappointed.

Beautiful random stop, super friendly staff and animals. I came by myself (as an adult) and had a great time just walking around feeding the animals. Even made a new buddy!

Mother and daughter farm animal experience
Oct 2020
My daughter and I visited and were warmly greeted by one of the owners. She was very helpful and explained what animals to feed who not to feed and why. The animals were very friendly and well loved by the owners. We also discovered the subtle differences llamas and alpacas. Pablo the donkey is an absolute dude! The views are also out of this world.

Amazing time in Glenorchy
Sep 2020 • Couples
This was so amazing! The owners were really helpful and informative. Feeding all the alpacas, the donkey, lambs, sheep, goats, deer and ponies was so much fun. All the animals are really people friendly and are really funnu to interact with.
Amazing view as well!

A wonderful place to visit!
Sep 2020
I visited the Glenorchy Animal Experience with my Japanese husband, as I wanted him to meet some farm animals (not something you can experience easily in Japan).

We had a wonderful time feeding the animals and enjoying the beautiful scenery. But the best part was chatting to the friendly farmer owner (and his dog Trevor) and his wife and the other staff. They clearly love meeting visitors to their 3rd generation-owned farm.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and I would recommend a visit to anyone who loves animals. The drive to and from Glenorchy from Queenstown is stunning too :-)
