After the show you can visit the Farmyard Nursery, which is home to our cutest baby animals who are available for cuddles and photos! There are three exciting shows a day at 9.30am, 11.00am and 2.30pm. Plus, if you really want to explore the Agrodome 350-acre working farm then join our Farm Tour. During this guided tour, you'll get to hand-feed loads of friendly animals including Romney sheep, cattle, deer, llamas, ostrich, pigs and alpaca!You’ll also sample delicious kiwifruit juice and honey from our land. Tours depart daily at 10.40am, 12.10pm, 1.30pm and 3.40pm.

If you haven't ever seen a sheep being shorn or taken a tractor ride around a farm before then this would be worth a visit when in Rotorua.

The best thing about Kiwis is their sense of humour, and in this case showmanship. The sheep were pretty good as well.

It was great experience. I saw so many sheeps, alpakas, and so on. But It was very cold because there is no window or door in tracter.

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.
