"Agrodome 1" Agrodome Tip by batgirl1001

Agrodome, Rotorua: 17 reviews and 25 photos


The Agrodome turned out to be a worthwhile half-day trip for us and we got to see a lot of farm animals and see a working farm.

Yes, despite its rather lucrative tourism function, the Agrodome is also a working farm. It has many animals and not just sheep. We saw ostriches, deers, alpacas, cows, ducks etc and also kiwifruit trees, pines and grapevines at the Agrodome.

But right now, here is a display of the various kinds of sheep in NZ. Apparently there are about 30 or so varieties and are used depending on their wool or meat.

As you can see, the Merino sheep standing on top is the ultimate prize. It can cost up to a tens thousands of dollars for a prized Merino sheep. When we checked out the gift stores, we saw a Merino coat worth about $1100NZ.

Address: Western Rd, Ngongotaha.
Directions: On the main road into Rotorua, just outside of town if you are coming in from the north. Can't miss it.
