The New Zealand wool industry may not be as big as it was during the late 19th century, but sheep farming is still important to many Kiwis. Visitors to the island country can gain greater insight into what goes on at a sheep farm when they take their car rental in Auckland
This all-ages attraction is not located in Auckland, but it is only about 40 minutes away and well worth the drive. After all, where else in New Zealand are travelers able to watch an authentic sheep farm experience two times a day?
During a SheepWorld show, dogs round up the animals so they can be sorted out and eventually shorn. From there, visitors to this attraction can learn how the sheep’s wool then finds a new purpose.
In addition to observing the shearing process, visitors to SheepWorld can learn about the role wool has played in New Zealand’s cultural and economic development. Before travelers hop in their car rental in New Zealand
and return to Auckland, they can grab a bite to eat at the Farmers Table Café or do a little shopping at the site’s EcoWool Store.
