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.

Awesome place to take your kids! Especially the sheep & dog show, just make sure you get there by 11am but if you don't there's another one at 2pm. They're in the Entertainment Book too so for those who has one, bring the voucher &...More

We loved it here. It was so much fun to pet all the animals. Don’t think it hokey to feed them, it is totally worth it. Give yourself time to visit all the areas. We arrived during a show, which was great as most people...More

We drove to Warkworth NZ to visit sheepworld and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We fed the various animals, did a 10minute nature walk and watched a sheep dog demo and sheep shearing. Angus and Terrin explained all aspects of sheep farming. Great gift shop too!
