Larnach Castle, Dunedin

Larnach Castle (also referred to as “Larnach’s Castle”), is an imposing mansion on the ridge of the Otago Peninsula, within the limits of Dunedin, close to the small settlement of Pukehiki. It is one of a few houses of this scale in New Zealand. The house and its grounds are regularly open to the public.

The Larnach Castle gardens are one of only five gardens nationwide to have been given the rating of “garden of international significance” by the New Zealand Gardens Trust. They were the first gardens in the South Island to be given this award; the only other garden in the South Island with this ranking is also in Dunedin – Dunedin Botanic Gardens.

After many years in which the place fell into disrepair, it was bought by Barry and Margaret Barker in 1967 and has since been restored. It affords spectacular views of the Otago Peninsula and Harbour and is 10 kilometres by road from the city centre.
