Cruise across Lake Whakatipu to Walter Peak on board Queenstown’s iconic steamship TSS Earnslaw. Relax on the lakeside terrace or inside the Colonel's Homestead Restaurant as the gourmet barbecue is freshly prepared. Our refreshed menu offers succulent meats cooked on the rotisserie/grill, a selection of salads, vegetables and bread. Then finish your meal with a scrumptious dessert. Afterwards, watch the sheepdogs in action before your return cruise.
