They were completely engaged and amazed to find this huge stock trading event in the middle of town. You can get right in amongst the sheep, cattle and dogs, watch the auctioneers at work and see the locals buying their stock. Literally thousands of animals come and go through here

Take some time to see rural New Zealand at work. An opportunity for a local, retired farmer to show you around the sale yards in action. a real treat. Anyone with a rural interest should take the time to check out the sale yards in action

What an amazing piece of live history! For $10 a retired farmer shows you the ins and outs of NZ,s biggest sale yard. Hint...don't wear leather soled shoes...

Appeals to people with agricultural interests and also people who enjoy seeing something really different to the normal guided tour. The auctioneers perform well on sale days and it's a real operational stock sale - the largest saleyard in NZ well worth visiting

We had Canadian visitors staying and decided to take them on a Saleyards Tour, something we had not done ourselves. What a surprise we all loved it, it was so entertaining and interesting. Would really recommend this tour.
