Experience life on a New Zealand farm, learn about traditional farming and herding skills, and meet the friendly and cuddly animals at Agrodome. Founded by world-champion sheep shearer Godfrey Bowen back in 1971, the 160 hectare (350 acre) complex serves as both a popular tourist attraction and a fully operating sheep and cattle farm. From the shows displaying various sheep breeds and the clever herding dogs, to the shearing museum and animal nursery, the farm showcases all aspects of rural living in New Zealand. At the farm's kiosk you can find freshly brewed coffee and a selection of snacks. Several ticket packages are available, which you can purchase online.

  • My young children really enjoyed the show! My son even went on stage and got to feed the animals. If your kids like to see, touch and hold animals, this is a great place to go.  more »
  • Had a quick visit and went to the sheep show. It was good fun and the show is entertaining. Didn't have to go around the farm but did see some of the sheep dog trials.  more »

  • Absolutely loved everything at Argodone. We went for my daughter but my husband and I ended up loving it as well. The sheep show is wonderful and a great host. The your is lots of fun too. We loved feeding the animals and trying some honey. What we really liked too was that this place is owned by a Maori tribe. Feels good to support locals instead of unknown corporations.
  • A cool place for tourist and if you want a show. Don't expect a authentic farm. The show especially about the sheep is really cool to watch but everything else is a little bit weird at least if you ever been to a "real" farm. Most visitors are Asian that have never been on the countryside and that's what this farm is made for.
