Beautiful cruise on a gorgeous lake which made the trip worthwhile. Tour of the farm was not terribly interesting until we watched the sheepdogs at work and saw a brief introduction to shearing the sheep.

Wonderful views and confortable trip on the lake, perfect reception and friendly staff at the farm with the explanations on the sheep farming.
Less interesting 4x4 tour of the property on a rough road ...

The trip is good. The view from the cruise is beautiful. You could know more about sheep industry in the sheep farm station. And the view there is good too.
