Whatever your age and nationality, there's always plenty for you at Sheepworld.
New Zealand Farmyard
Explore our lovely NZ Farmyard which is full of friendly animals including mini-horses, donkeys, pigs, emu, alpacas, cows, deer, goats and
of course sheep! Plus many more to learn about, feed and take your selfie photos with.
Don't miss "Follow the Feedout" and feeding the possums - they're a great chance to learn more about our animals from the Sheepworld staff that care for them.
Eco Discovery Trail
A short, easy stroll through beautiful native bush, wetlands and streams. Learn about our New Zealand's unique flora and fauna as you enjoy being immersed in a stunning natural environment.
Information panels help you understand the New Zealand ecosystem and its challenges, and allow you to identify the plants, trees, and birds around you.
You might even hear the Tūī calling from the treetops.
Eel and Emu Feeding
Eels are amazing creatures, and we've got several of them living in the Sheepworld pond.
Gather at the pond for an information talk on these slippery native creatures and then have a go at hand-feeding them yourself.
Eel feeding is subject to weather and other seasonal factors. If it's not possible to feed the eels, the emu are waiting eagerly on standby.
What's On and Events
In addition to all the regular attractions and things to see and do, we often have special events and holiday programmes at Sheepworld.
