Bill Smith was amazing-did a whole sheep shearing show just for me! Very informative about the sheep and wool. Was great to meet Beau-the sweetest huntaway dog. A must do if you're in Kaikoura!

If you have 15-30 minutes to spare in Kaikoura, take a 5 minute drive out to the Kaikoura point (seal colony), and visit the Point Sheep Shearing Show. The show is very informative as Pete explains the history of shearing at his farm, information about the shearing and fleece cleaning process, with 2-3 sheep dogs there to help out. It's a great family event, highly recommended.…

This was great fun to watch and also very informative. You are shown all aspects of sheep shearing, as well as being able to bottle feed a lamb.

I just happened upon this place while walking to the seal colony and was glad I did. They have two shows a day, one at 1:30, the other at 4:00. They take you into the barn where they explain a bit of the history and details of shearing sheep, letting you feel the different kinds of wool and showing you the tools. Then, once the shearing was finished, they handed out bottles and we got to feed the lambs. It was a fun way to spend about an hour and was a bit of serendipity coming across the place at the right time. I'd recommend for anyone who wants a bit of a different experience other than the typical tourist attractions.…
