Six of us on a damp day in Rotorua decided to give the Agrodome a visit, the show lasts around an hour. Firstly a number of fairly tame sheep who seemed well versed in what was expected of them were introduced one by one !!...More

We were treated to a display of 19 different breeds of sheep and got to watch a working sheep dog, herding the sheep into an enclosure.

Had a great time feeding the Sheeps & Alpacas. Enjoyed the farm tour.. saw lots of Kiwi fruits in the farm as well. Lots of souvenirs shops in the area. Didn't get to see sheep shearing & other shows but still had a fun time.

This was a very fun afternoon. With audience participation, you can milk a cow, feed a lamb from a baby bottle, etc. There are many live animals on the stage and available for petting after the demonstration. Kids will love it.

This was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. The Agrodome show was entertaining and informative. I had no idea there are so many different kinds of sheep! Make sure you tour the farm and taste the fabulous honey!

Hi, I’d like to spend more time on the farm. However, I don’t know how to drive, instead of joining a local tour, can I take any public transport to Agrodome? Thanks.

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.
