For over 40 years, visitors from all over the globe have come to the Agrodome to see our world-famous Farm Show starring a cast of talented animals… and you! The live farm show includes a display of New Zealand's 19 most popular sheep breeds, working sheep dogs, sheep shearing and cow milking demonstration. After the show you can also visit the Farmyard Nursery, which is home to our cutest baby animals who are available for cuddles and photos all year round!

Plus, if you really want to explore the Agrodome 350-acre working farm then join our Farm Tour. During this guided tour, you'll get to hand-feed loads of friendly animals such as sheep, cows, deer, emu, alpaca, pigs and ostrich, aswell as sample delicious kiwifruit juice and honey from our land.

How about an exclusive tour of the Agrodome? Our new Back Country Adventure takes you off-road and into areas not normally open to visitors! You'll travel through swamps, orchards, cattle and sheep pastures in a powerful 686cc Yamaha Viking VI! Hold on tight, these vehicles can traverse almost anything, ideal for accessing some truly incredible panoramic views of Lake Rotorua and Mt Ngongotaha.

If you'd like to slow down from your busy lifestyle then climb aboard an authentic wagon and enjoy a laid-back trip around the Agrodome Farm with our Clydesdale Team. You will explore serene pasture land and paddocks whilst being pulled along by the trio of beautiful Clydesdale horses.

Before you leave, don't forget to pop into the Woollen Mill and Shearing Museum. Here you’ll learn the remarkable story of NZ pioneers the Bowen brothers and discover the full process of wool from the Sheep’s back to yours.

    Great half day out with young kids.

    Our three year old really enjoyed it. A bit pricey compared to UK, but that is the same everywhere in New Zealand.

    A great way to spend an afternoon.

    The show was really entertaining but we missed the dog show afterwards due to poor communication on their part. Take the kids or just go yourself but wear washable shoes. Theres a fair amount of poo to walk through.

    A bit touristy.

    However, the sheep show is entertaining. How they train those sheep amazed me. Sheep are not real smart. Host speaks very politely to the dog unlike most real sheep and cattle farmers.

    Super touristy, super fun!

    I did the show and tour and had a great time. I liked that they didn't shy away from saying where the animals were headed eventually. I sent my mother, who is a teacher, to the show and she loved it! Execellent at incorporating fun and information.

    Wet myself laughing at sheep shoes - live translation provided for non - english speakers so no jokes are missed.

    Farm/orchard tour is interesting but nothing really new.

    Our tour group walked out after 15 minutes of the hour long show!

    ... we figured that we were the sheep and the real sheep were looking at us - the tourists. This type of activity is too 'touristy' and with 300 other people, forget it! The acoustics are bad and you can't hear what they are saying.
