Situated on the picturesque Otago Peninsula, Larnach Castle and gardens is an attraction not to be missed. It is New Zealand’s only castle, built in 1871 by William Larnach, merchant baron and politician and houses a large collection of original New Zealand period furniture and antiques. The Castle is still privately owned and cared for by the Barker family since 1967. Hear of the tragic and scandalous history on a guided tour then enjoy time wandering around the Garden of International Significance. You’ll also enjoy a delicious High Tea while visiting the castle, served in the Grand Ballroom.
