Walter Peak Gourmet BBQ Dinner

For a dining experience unlike any other in Queenstown, join us on a trip to the Colonel’s Homestead Restaurant at Walter Peak High Country Farm.

Walter Peak Gourmet BBQ Dinner

Steeped in Queenstown’s pioneering history, your experience starts with a Lake Wakatipu cruise in the 105 year old steamship, the TSS Earnslaw. Then disembark at Walter Peak High Country Farm, one of the first farms set up in the region.

Relaxing in the charming ambience of the Colonel’s Homestead Restaurant, the heart of the stately homestead at Walter Peak, you’ll enjoy gourmet dining prepared by our chef in front of you.

You can choose from an expansive array of New Zealand and local produce, from succulent meats cooked on the outdoor rotisserie or grill, a selection of delicious vegetables and salads. Then finish your meal with our irresistible desserts, New Zealand cheeses and freshly brewed tea & coffee.

After dinner, an entertaining and informative demonstration gives you a glimpse of life in the high country.

The night-time cruise home is magical. Sing-a-long with the ship’s pianist or simply breathe in the fresh night air on the moonlit decks as the lights of Queenstown draw nearer.

We went on the dinner cruise across on the Earnslaw. Great trip across with fantastic scenery.

Our gourmet dinner had great range of seafoods, BBQ meats and selection of salads and vegetables. Food was great only but! was the vegetables werent the warmest, but in saying that the dessert was decadent to say the least.

After dinner was a shearing show with the dogs doing their bit. A great display for the tourists.
A Must Do!!
