The Wool Shed

A great selfie spot outside The Wool Shed

The Wool Shed is a unique visitor attraction presenting the industry, culture and international sport of shearing in New Zealand. Experience the ambience and smells of two historic wool sheds. Videos, models, photos, wool handling and shearing equipment combine to tell the story of the 160 years of shearing history that have resulted in New Zealand being so highly regarded for its quality wool industry.

The pinnacle of competitive shearing is the annual Golden Shears held in Masterton. The Golden Shears wall of fame puts a name and face to the years of shearing legends.
