Overview
More
Sheepworld is New Zealand’s Sheep and Wool Centre. In twice-daily live demonstrations the dogs round up and bring in the sheep, which are then sorted and shorn. Our Wonderful Wool multimedia exhibition then explains how the fleece is turned into an amazing variety of products, many of which are on sale in our store. There’s also an eco-discovery stroll through native bush, a natural adventure playground, a farmyard full of animals and an on-site cafe. Suitable for all ages.

We went to sheep world on a day that it poured. But the rain didn't damper our trip. The sheep shearer - a Wonder Woman - was able to likity-split take off the sheep's wool. But before doing so, she taught the group a lot...More

Great visit. We enjoyed every minute of it. The kids loved it. We would have stayed longer for further farm life experience if was possible. Thanks for a lovely experience 🙏

This is a really wonderful experience full of information about sheep farming. The show includes, dog handling, sheep shearing and lamb feeding. Great show well presented and very enjoyable. Two shows a day starting at 11am and 2pm. Highly recommended.

We took a couple a couple of preschoolers and they loved it. A good opportunity for them to feed and pat a range of animals. I'd recommend it to anyone with young children
