Sheepworld is New Zealand’s premier showcase for sheep and wool production, just 45 minutes north of the Auckland CBD.
Visitors can enjoy a step by step insight into how in New Zealand we farm our sheep, then harvest and use their wool.
In our twice-daily live shows the dogs skilfully round up and bring in the sheep, which are then sorted and shorn. Our presenters show how the dogs are trained, explaining how and why sheep are farmed here in this entertaining hour-long show.
Sheepworld is set in over 30 acres of beautiful New Zealand countryside. The complex also features a wide variety of friendly farmyard animals to meet in the farm park, an informative eco-trail through stunning native bush, and a café and toilets.
Our range of farm activities and tours are suitable for tourist, educational, corporate and social groups. The rural crafts, guided tours and animal encounters are ideal for groups wanting to make their visit to Sheepworld even more special.
Sheepworld Dog & Sheep Show now in Chinese Language: With a dedicated Chinese staff member on the team, Sheepworld is able to provide some translated commentary for Chinese groups in our regular shows, and a full presentation in Chinese for pre-booked private shows. There is also a scheduled Chinese language-presented show at 12.30pm each Sunday open to individuals and groups (from 2nd December).
Short on time? We have a Highlight show that captures the very best of the usual show in 30-45 minutes, and includes sheep shearing, sorting and lamb feeding. These are a great option for those tours heading north to the Bay of Islands.
Our on-site Ecowool features beautiful high-quality New Zealand sourced woollen and sheepskin clothing, footwear and furnishings.
Sheepworld is educational and entertaining for visitors of all ages. With the main features located indoors or undercover, it is an all-weather attraction.
