Rugged coastline and windswept cliffs harbour New Zealand Fur Seals, Hookers Sea Lion (among the world’s rarest),
Blue Penguin (arguably the world’s cutest), the majestic Royal Albatross (world’s largest wingspan)
and the Yellow-Eyed Penguin (the world’s rarest).

SHEEP SHED & ARGO WILDLIFE COMBO
This tour begins by taking you inside a genuine NZ sheep shed. Expect a hands-on experience, as you take in the energy and excitement of a working shearing shed. Then it is time to be charmed by wildlife, during a Natures Wonders Agro tour.

THE ROYAL ALBATROSS COLONY Optional Tour
You can choose to take a tour of the Royal Albatross Colony instead of Natures Wonders (not both). The world’s only mainland breeding colony of the Royal Albatross.

For group bookings (6 to 30 people),
a tour incorporating all three options – Argo Wildlife, Albatross Colony and Sheep Shed – can be arranged by request.

NATURES WONDERS - SHEEP SHED & ARGO WILDLIFE COMBO tourAwesome Tours Sheep
    ‘The Sheep Shed’  Stepping inside a working shearing shed is unlike anything you’re ever experienced before. The smell of the wool’s lanolin, the buzz of the shearing machines, the excitement of the dogs pushing the sheep up into the shed. The energy is incredible.
This tour is a rare insight into the day-to-day activity of a genuine New Zealand sheep farm. You will experience shearing and wool handling, just like it happens on farms through New Zealand every day. Expect to touch the wool and talk with farm staff during your visit. We’re confident that you will not forget your time inside the Sheep Shed.
