Lone Pine offers various activities and presentations on Australian wildlife. Enjoy the Australian outback farm experience with the sheep dog and sheep shearing shows, watch the dogs work their sheep mustering skills and then see the sheep have their wool shaved off, three times daily. Performed by experienced award-winning sheep dog handlers and their loyal dogs, this is a must see show!
