Overview

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.

OMG, so many wonderful animals!!!! You can buy animal feed to give to the super friendly residents. Definitely pay for the sheep show as well, it's interesting to learn how the farmers shear and herd in the animals and the sheepdog's important job. Highlights of...More

Took our grandchildren (age 4 & 9), and was blown away by experience. The children were encouraged to participate in sheep sheering, bottle feeding and petting. A great day out for all of us.

The main animal park is worth the visit as its very interactive. The sheep demonstration is not great. Compared to the Agrodome at Rotarua, there's too much talking and not enough happening; as a result all the kids at our visit got a bit bored...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
