Farmtour at Paua Bay

Active, Activities, Culture

For a true farmlife experience you can book a farmtour at Paua Bay. Meet Sue & Murray Johns, their sheep and their dogs and come to where the land meets the sea.  www.pauabayfarmtours.co.nz.

Experience traditional New Zealand farming on a Hill Country Farm on Banks Peninsula. See sheep dogs working and get a hands-on demonstration on mustering sheep. Try your skills at shearing a sheep and handling the wool. Listen to the history of Akaroa and the early settlers and enjoy afternoon tea and scones on the homestead verandah.

Murray Johns, the farmer of Paua Bay Farm, will welcome you upon arrival and lead you through the colourful history of his family, being farmers on that very spot for five generations.
