This popular agricultural theme park features live sheep shows where you can watch sheep shearing demonstrations, sheep auctions and sheep dog trials. There’s also the opportunity to milk a cow on stage. The whole show is pretty touristy and doesn’t appeal much to backpackers, but the Agrodome complex is also home to several more backpacker-focused activities that include bungy jumping, jet boating, swoop ride and zorbing.
