Business Type: Most Known Castle

Overview

Larnach Castle is an imposing building which stands on the Otago Peninsula

Address: 145 Camp Road, Dunedin, Otago, South Island Dunedin & Otago

Description

Built between 1873 and 1887 the finished house contained 43 rooms and a ballroom.

Many unhappy tragedies caused the castle to be left for years falling into a state of disrepair.

Bought by the Barker’s in 1967, the castle has being beautifully restored. Wander the grounds, climb the castle tower which affords commanding 360 degree views of the peninsula, city and harbour.

Locations

Larnach Castle is located at 145 Camp Road, which runs off Highcliff Road that runs through the centre of the Peninsula. A separate Camp Road also exists running from the harbour up towards the Castle, but this road stops and does not connect with 145 Camp Road. It is a walking track through farm paddocks.
