Depart Akaroa on a scenic drive to the tiny township of Little River and visit Manderley Farm, owned by Ross and Mary Millar.

A homemade morning or afternoon tea awaits you, served in the heritage homestead with beautiful gardens overlooking Lake Forsyth.

Watch the provincial-champion border collie sheepdogs in action on this picturesque 750-acre working sheep farm, and view a sheep-shearing demonstration up close--it is quite fascinating.

Returning to the township of Akaroa--a charming settlement strongly influenced by its French whaling history--you’ll have time to browse in the shops (on your own) before the tender takes you back to the ship.
