TSS Earnslaw Cruises

Step aboard – watch the stokers fuelling the fireboxes and hear the sound of the steam engines working as the TSS Earnslaw takes you on a cruise of beautiful Lake Wakatipu.

Be transported in style on one of our regular departures to Walter Peak High Country Farm. As you relax on board enjoy delicious café style food or a drink from the bar (extra cost).

Every cruise allows you plenty of time to explore the TSS Earnslaw’s decks and bridge, view the engine room and historic displays in the Fo’c’sle Gallery and join a sing-along with the ship’s pianist.

Cruises depart regularly throughout the day. You can combine the cruise with a visit to Walter Peak High Country Farm for a guided farm visit & barbecue lunch or an evening buffet dining.

Walter Peak Barbecue Excursions

Combine a lake cruise and a guided farm visit with a barbecue lunch. The barbecue is freshly prepared and served to you either on the lakeside terrace or inside the Homestead. Fresh salads and crusty bread perfectly complement the food sizzling on the grill. Before or after the barbecue there is time for you to see the farm animals and to join in the farmyard walking tour.

Walter Peak Evening Dining

The perfect way for you to end an action packed day in and around Queenstown is to take a nostalgic cruise on the TSS Earnslaw to the Colonel’s Homestead at Walter Peak. Enjoy high country hospitality and a carvery style buffet , featuring the best of New Zealand meats and seafood, along with fresh vegetables and garden salads. You may well find the house dessert specialities hard to resist!

An entertaining after dinner show provides a glimpse into farming life. On your return cruise to Queenstown, relax with a drink from the bar or join a lively sing-along.
