Welcome, and congratulations on your engagement!

RealNZ operates in some of the most beautiful places in New Zealand and offers several unique locations for wedding ceremonies, receptions and celebrations.


From the moment you board the vintage steamship TSS Earnslaw for a romantic journey across Lake Whakatipu, to the moment you set foot back in Queenstown, everything about your wedding will be remarkable!

Nestled on the western shores, Walter Peak High Country Farm has expansive lake and mountain views, exquisitely manicured gardens and rustic wooden jetties. With almost endless photo opportunities, the hardest part is deciding where you would like to hold the ceremony. The historic Colonel’s Homestead Restaurant has the charm and style of a nostalgic era with open fireplaces, chandeliers, and antique-filled rooms. It is perfect for receptions or pre/post-wedding celebrations.

Our menus offer a delicious array of locally sourced produce and high-quality New Zealand wines to match. The TSS Earnslaw and Walter Peak High Country Farm are steeped in Queenstown’s pioneering history and together with unrivalled views, location, exceptional cuisine and dedicated service; we are the perfect choice for your big day.
