The only castle in New Zealand. Beautiful inside and a lot of history. They tell you everything and you can spend so much time there.

In the Larnach Castle - the only castle in New Zealand. I felt almost the same way like when I was visiting some castles back home. This place and the owners have very interesting history.

Impressive castle and gardens, beautifully restored by the Barker family. Very nice, the staff treat you like a lord.

Nice garden around the castle - $12 per person is quite pricey.

Quite expensive but well worth it - the house / gardens and ball room are beautiful. Can easily spend a few hours here. History of the Larnach family is fascinating. You are welcome to take photos in the 'castle' but not use your flash - why would that be? None of our photos came out as it was too dark inside which was a shame.

Beautiful gardens and the house worth a visit for $56 spent at least 3 hours on site.
