Agrodome Sheep Show and Farm Tour - Duration: Own Leisure  

Like rain in England, leprechauns in Ireland and moose in Canada, there's one thing most people associate with New Zealand - sheep! That's why no trip to Rotorua would be complete without a visit to The Agrodome and the chance to interact with New Zealand's friendliest animals. The Agrodome is a 640-hectare (160-acre) sheep and beef farm which has been opened up to the public. An educational and hands-on experience, you'll get the chance to join in on farming activities as you learn about farming in NZ and meet the farmers and their sheep. Step back 100 years in time at the Woollen Mill where you'll learn about processing wool and maybe even catch a demonstration of carding and spinning.
