Reconnoitre the Past
Gazing out the tower views, examining the New Zealand antiques, exploring the 35 acres of gardens, or wandering in and out of twelve beautifully themed rooms in
Larnach Castle. New Zealand’s only castle, offering guests a look back in time.
Stay a night in one of the rooms, enjoying the superb food they serve in the conservative dining room. However, beware. This spectacular castle may be innocent during the day, butat night… Who knows.
Considered to be one of the most haunted places in New Zealan . William Larnach committed suicide after the terrible personal tragedies of death in his family. Doors closing, footsteps in the night, and even a feeling of being touched while sleeping may attract those eager to encounter the supernatural.
For those that would enjoy Larnarch Castle, then you can’t miss Olveston; enabling an intimate glimpse of Dunedin in Edwardian times.
Meander through the English/New Zealand inspired gardens. Your tour guide taking you through a maze of ancient treasure, the furniture set as if waiting for someone to come live here. The atmosphere creating lived-in quarters, as if a person from the Edwardian era is going to step through those doors, startled at your intrusion.
