It was a very entertaining and great show with the different sheep being introduced and with one sheep being sheered. Audios and headphones are also available in different languages! It will be handy to bring an umbrella just in case it rains when you walk around outside.

After a change to our intended plan we headed out to the Agrodome. We booked on a Farm Tour which was great. It took just over an hour. We really enjoyed the interactivity, stopping to feed different Sheep & Alpacca. Our tour guide also stopped to tell us about the different cattle & feed one of the bulls. The tour... More

Watching the many different sheep as they are lead into position on stage and then a shearing demonstration was good fun, the shearer is a good showman. Audience participation is encouraged and some lucky people got to feed the lambs. Had only a short visit here as it was part of an organised excursion by Scenic.

This was an excursion from a bus tour of New Zealand. Unfortunately all we had time to see was the very brief exhibition of a working sheepdog. Then went into hall for the sheep show. This is very interesting and has some humour. Did not get the chance to see the farm, or other animals. Back on the bus and... More

There was heavy rain because a tropical cyclone was on its way, and there were lots of tour groups hanging around waiting for the sheep show to begin. The reception area was crowded, making it difficult to get to the counter to buy tickets. Once inside the huge show area, it was easier to walk around, interact with the lambs,... More

We did the farm show and the tour combo. Both truly excellent. We got to feed sheep cows and alpacas plus taste some kiwi fruit honey. Will definitely do it again.

Been before and now bringing own kids to watch this show, never a disappointing and in fact it's as interesting and interactive as ever! Kids going on the stage, feeding baby sheep and collecting wool. Horse and carriage ride was a pleasant surprise too!

Was fun for the kids and got to see lots of sheep. Not much food available on site. The seats on the tractor are not friendly for disabled people. No one there to help them. Otherwise nice trip around for the children to feed the animals
