You know what they say, it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. Well, with this unique dining experience, it’s about both! Allow the TSS Earnslaw to sail you across Lake Wakatipu, where a stunning lunch or supper awaits you at Walter Peak High Country Farm.

A feast for all the senses, this is food with a side dish of adventure... we needn’t wax lyrical about the jaw-dropping scenery that the lake has to offer, but once on land, Walter Peak treats you to even more breath-taking views of the surrounding scenery and an elegant setting that is reminiscent of bygone eras. Seclusion at its most stylish, this is not one to be missed!

Enjoying an informal, buffet style, you will discover tables laden with all kinds of gourmet BBQ goodies. As well as wood-fired meats and refreshing salads that pair beautifully with… well… everything. There are many vegetarian options to tuck in to, and with a constantly updated seasonal menu, you can expect something different on each visit.

After your meal, feel free to roam the picturesque lakeside gardens, or participate in an entertaining farm demonstration. Bring a glass o’ rouge with you if that’s your style or opt for a spritely coffee to accompany your post-meal wanderings. Hop back on the boat to Queenstown where you can grab a hot drink or another wine for the journey. We’re ready to sail whenever you are….
