For a dining experience like no other, cruise across Lake Wakatipu on the iconic TSS Earnslaw and discover Queenstown’s incomparable fine dining destination.
Cruise aboard the historic TSS Earnslaw across to Walter Peak High Country Farm. Once at the lakeside Colonel’s Homestead Restaurant savour the delicious aromas as our chef has the best of local produce sizzling away on the grill.
Overlooking Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown’s alpine scenery, the Colonel’s Homestead at Walter Peak High Country Farm is the perfect place to spend a few hours. Its colonial architecture and sweeping grounds evoke the elegance of a bygone era.
On the menu is salads, vegetables and a variety of succulent meats cooked on the wood-fired BBQ. This is not the typical Kiwi BBQ you may imagine. Instead, the Chef oversees a wood-fired grill empire that’s responsible for an incredible range of delectable cuisine. From sausages prepared by a local butcher and Cardrona merino lamb to locally sourced beef and pork to expertly crafted salads and sides (not to forget an incredible dessert selection), this is a culinary trip not to be missed.
An entertaining farm demonstration is also included or you can explore the beautiful lakeside gardens before enjoying a cruise back to Queenstown on the TSS Earnslaw.
