Welcome to Glenorchy Animal Experience! Come and enjoy fun encounters with a wide variety of friendly farm animals.

You can feed and pat our quiet and friendly goats, miniature horses, alpacas, llamas, sheep, cows, bunnies and guinea pigs, chooks, turkeys, roosters and ducks, and get close for great photo opportunities. 

Situated just two kilometres out of town, set on an established third generation family farm the views are spectacular; you see as far as the lake and the Rees and Dart Valleys, Humboldt mountain range and the wetland.

Another great attraction at Glenorchy Animal Experience is the daily sheep shearing demonstration; come and watch this amazing skill and learn about shearing and wool processing.

We have purpose built facilities that allow you to enjoy our animals even on a wet day, plenty of farm related artefacts and curios to look at and a small shop to purchase a souvenir.

A fabulous day out for all ages where you can relax and experience NZ farm life up close.
