Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Bay of Plenty Region / Rotorua District / Rotorua / Ngongotaha / Agrodome
Experience life on a New Zealand farm, learn about traditional farming and herding skills, and meet the friendly and cuddly animals at Agrodome. Founded by world-champion sheep shearer Godfrey Bowen back in 1971, the 160 hectare (350 acre) complex serves as both a popular tourist attraction and a fully operating sheep and cattle farm. From the shows displaying various sheep breeds and the clever herding dogs, to the shearing museum and animal nursery, the farm showcases all aspects of rural living in New Zealand. At the farm's kiosk you can find freshly brewed coffee and a selection of snacks. Several ticket packages are available, which you can purchase online.

Love the sheep show! The presenter is so hilarious! The sheep are so plump and cute. You even get to feed them and the alpaca. Do watch for the dung on the grass. You can also enjoy a cup of refreshing kiwi juice and their mixed honey.
It’s an auditorium where u even get translation in various other languages if you don’t understand English. It was beautiful, to be able to see all the different kinds of sheep at a go. Their wool and the funny shepherd made it even more interesting. Saw sheep sheering, it didn’t seem like the sheep was being hurt, but it felt like a warm sweater was snatched away leaving the sheep bare-bones. Even the dogs were amazing. I didn’t get a chance to take out milk from the cows but this entire natural process is awe-striking. Parking is liberally available, they make sure there is enough space. The souvenir shop is Damn expensive but the wool is pure. I bought a head cap. The sweaters are so soft, feels like they will melt away on your hand. This is a reliable place to buy sweaters.
