Larnach Castle

Location:Dunedin & Coastal Otago

Welcome to Larnach Castle - New Zealand’s only Castle. With its exciting, sometimes scandalous and tragic history, magnificent carved ceilings, New Zealand antiques and breathtaking views, Larnach Castle offers you a vision of the past and present.

Today, the Castle is the home of the Barker family, who have spent over forty years lovingly restoring the building and recreating the beauty of the 14 hectares of gardens and grounds. The gardens at Larnach Castle have been rated by the New Zealand Gardens Trust as a Garden of International Significance. The gardens are Margaret Barker's personal creation over 45 years - not only is she a restorer of historic buildings, but also a passionate gardener.
