Sheepworld & Matakana Village Day Trip

Learn first hand about New Zealand’s sheep farming in our fascinating and entertaining one hour presentation - featured in numerous TV shows and magazine articles worldwide. 

Our live demonstration begins with the sheepdogs rounding up and bringing in the sheep, which are then sorted and shorn. Our experienced presenters are full of facts and explain what is happening throughout.
Shows are authentic and interactive. Visitors get a close-up view of all the action, and of course everybody wants to get ’hands-on’ when its time to feed the lambs! Shows are held daily at 11am and 2pm in our fully seated indoor Show Barn, and are suitable for all ages. Shows are about one hour duration.

Then visit Matakana Village, the heart of the Matakana Wine Country.
