Larnach 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.

It affords spectacular views of the Otago Peninsula and Harbour and is 10 kilometres by road from the city centre. The house and its grounds are regularly open to the public. The gardens were recently awarded Gardens of International Significance. The Castle is still privately owned and cared for by the Barker family.

This superbly crafted building with magnificent architecture showcases a unique collection of New Zealand antiques, with a tragic and scandalous history. Spectacular tower views and beautiful gardens complete this enjoyable award winning experience. Boutique Lodge accommodation is available in the Castle gardens. Weddings, Balls, Functions and Celebrations are held in the beautiful 3000 square foot Ballroom.
