Day Trips

  • Arrive at the RF woolshed where there is plenty of parking for buses and cars
  • Enjoy a mustering demonstration where the sheep or cattle are bought in off the hills and into the covered yards. Guests will then enjoy another demonstration where they can get up close and personal with the sheep, see them being drafted or weighted.
  • Watch a shearing demonstration in our uniquely decorated woolshed. If you are brave, have a go shearing some of the sheep yourself!
  • Take a farm walk through native bush and over farm land, up to the picnic table where you may experience views of Mount Ruapehu, Mount Taranaki and the ocean
