The Agrodome is one on New Zealand's most loved tourist attractions....

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. After a full-on day of farm fun, ensure that you grab a souvenir to remember your visit from our fabulous gift store the Dog and Whistle .

The show wasn't all that appealing for me but my son would've had a great time interacting with the farm animals and dogs after the show!!

The show was great. Perfect combination of showmanship and standup comedy. The animals were so well trained. Wished we could have spent more time here, but our tour had other stops after so the visit was cut short.

What this man can't do with sheep isn't worth talking about this is polished showmanship at its very best. It is a class act and the rams and dogs did everything that was asked of them, very entertaining and will be loved and enjoyed by parents and children alike even includes audience participation. This is a must go to attraction.

Enjoyed the animals in the side area before the show began. What a showman! He made learning about all of the breeds of sheep fun. His demo showed how to sheer a sheep in under a minute--pros do 300 in a nine-hour day! His sheep dogs performed on command. This would be a great place to take children.

The sheep show was hilarious and it was interesting to learn about the different breeds of sheep. The sheep dog show was a bit bland, but you could appreciate the skills involved. The main problem was the hordes of Chinese tourists (it was the Chinese New Year holiday) who kept pushing in front of you to take millions of photos.

We visited with our Canadian exchange student who loved the show and the experience of petting baby animals. Our teenage daughter also enjoyed herself despite having frequent farm interactions herself. This show is an old favourite that hasn't staked.

Love the agrodome, I have been many times before and it never gets old. I always enjoy the farm show and farm tour. Well worth the money, plus with the new rides I'm sure even more enjoyment can come from it.
