Overview

You will be collected from Akaroa and travel through the picturesque Banks Peninsula to Christchurch before heading north to visit a working sheep farm set in a tranquil location.

On arriving in Christchurch and following a stop at the botanical gardens, your driver will take you on a brief sightseeing tour highlighting the city landmarks and the city centre which was badly damaged by two earthquakes in February 2011. See for yourself both the destruction of the central city and the rebuild that is taking place.

After your tour of the city, you will head back through the rolling hills of the Banks Peninsula to visit a working sheep farm. Enjoy the experience of watching sheep dogs work, rounding up the flock and penning them for you to touch, examine and photograph. A shearing demonstration has been arranged for you and afternoon tea will be provided.

Loved IT!

The tour was well organized meet off the cruise ship and departed the port on time. The views on the way into Christchurch were amazing, it was worth doing this tour for the scenery alone! We had a tour of Christchurch prior to visiting the farm and was truly shocked at the damage the city had suffered in an earthquake a couple of years earlier. Loved the farm, saw the sheep dog rounding up sheep, sheep shearing and even had something to eat with the farmer and his wife in the woolshed. Great Tour!
