The Agrodome is one on New Zealand's most loved tourist attractions. Located just 10 kms north of the Rotorua CBD, the Agrodome is home to the multi award winning Sheep Show . This famous Rotorua attraction features live sheep shearing, 19 breeds of champion rams, cow milking, lamb feeding, dog demonstrations as well as a full New Zealand dog trial. There are three exciting shows a day at 9.30am, 11.00am and 2.30pm. Each Sheep Show is an hour duration. Also join the Farm & Orchard Tour for a hands-on experience with a variety of farm animals including Cattle, Deer, Alpaca, Ostrich, Sheep and much more. You will also visit the Education Centre for honey and kiwifruit juice tasting. The Farm Tours depart daily at 10.40am, 12.10pm, 1.30pm and 3.40pm. Complete your Agrodome experience with a visit to the Woollen Mill and Shearing Shed to see the full process of wool from the Sheep's back to yours. The Farmyard Nursery is also a must see with baby animals available for cuddles and photos year round.

Popular place and well run but quite boring if you have been on a farm. Main show is a presented on stage with all types of sheep, sheep dogs and shearing. Presenter has obviously given speel a thousand times so knowledgeable.

Good for city kids who know nothing about agriculture. Loved the sheep dogs, sheep-shearing demonstration and other displays.

I learned a lot! It's a working farm and I wish our tour had actually had more time there. The staff was knowledgeable and we got to see a sheep sheared.

There is public transport available from the City Centre to Agrodome. There is a link but I am not able to post links on TripAdvisor. But if you check out Baybus routes, Rotorua you can find what you need.
