Activities in Rotorua during the school holidays

Trying to decide what to do during the school holidays? Two awesome ideas would be to visit Rotorua Heritage Farm where you can visit the 3D Trick Art Gallery or go on The Farm Tour to meet, feed and learn about all the different animals on our farm.

3D Trick Art Gallery


The first and only 3D Trick Art Gallery in NZ features stunning 2-dimensional artworks that YOU can become part of! Step into the picture and create an original optical illusion that will stun your friends and family and give the children a chance to really stretch their imaginations. Thousands of happy customers have visited the Gallery in its first year of operation, taking home one-of-a-kind photographs depicting “amazing adventures” like being eaten by a giant Maori warrior, hanging off a skyscraper or jumping over a crocodile-infested river!

The Farm Tour


The Farm Tour showcases a typical farm with a wide variety of animals from dogs, pigs, lambs and sheep, cows and horses, alpacas and ostrich to rabbits, deer and goats. While you enjoy the idyllic farm environment in the comfort of your seat, the tractor will tow you right into the paddocks where you can feed and pet the animals. Suitable for all ages, your guide will tailor his conversation to each group to make sure everyone has a great time and learns as much as possible. The sheep shearing show is an optional extra where you can witness one of NZs best sheep shearers in action.

If you’re looking for something different and fun to do during the school holidays, one or both of these activities would be great. Make a day of it and take the family for a Buffet lunch as well in our Farmside Buffet Restaurant. Ask about our COMBO prices for a really special deal, park the car in one place for the day and have a great time at our Rotorua Heritage Farm!
