Enjoy a quintessential Kiwi experience – a delicious BBQ lunch and a farm tour in a stunning lakeside setting. This is a lovely afternoon for couples and families alike.

Walter Peak Gourmet BBQ Lunch

Your tour starts with a cruise aboard the historic TSS Earnslaw across to Walter Peak High Country Farm.

Once there, you can sit back on the lakeside terrace of the Colonel’s Homestead Restaurant and savor the delicious aromas of New Zealand produce sizzling away on the grill. Chose from the seasonal menu - salads, vegetables, succulent meat cooked on the outdoor rotisserie or grill. If you’re vegetarian, don’t worry, you are well catered for too. Then finish your meal with a scrumptious dessert.

After your hearty lunch you can join a tour of the farmyard, view some of the farm animals and explore the beautiful lakeside gardens.

We came all the way from Wanaka to Queenstown for the Walter Peak trip and we choose Real Journey because we had good experience with them at Te-Anau.

We were right on time for the cruise and of course for the BBQ lunch which was part of the tour. The Lunch was so extensive and at a picturesque location beside the lake.

The service was fantastic which made the food more delicious. it is a must activity while at Queenstown.
A lovely way to spend the morning & early afternoon.

We left Queenstown around 10am and enjoyed a 45 minute cruise across the lake. The farm tour was lovely and I enjoyed the shearing of the sheep show.

The BBQ lunch is outstanding – ample food for a very large group, and I was surprised the food lines weren’t too long at all. Well worth it! Got back around 1:30pm – really well run by real Journeys.
