Real Journeys TSS Earnslaw Steamship Lake Cruises

Take a scenic cruise of Lake Wakatipu from Queenstown on board the iconic steamship TSS Earnslaw.

There is plenty of time to explore the decks and bridge, view the engine room, join a sing-along with the on board pianist or sit back and relax while enjoying food and a drink from the Promenade Cafe (extra cost). The TSS Earnslaw makes several daily trips across the lake to Walter Peak High Country Farm.

  • Duration: 1hr 30 mins
  • Departures: daily, all year*
  • Visit the Fo'c'sle Gallery
  • Watch the giant steam engines at work 
  • Drinks & food available from the Promenade Cafe

*The TSS Earnslaw will undergo annual maintenance 1 June 2020 - 5 July 2020 and will NOT be operating. Alternatively choose the Walter Peak Farm Tour and travel across Lake Wakatipu by one of our smaller boats.
