Larnach Castle is one of two castles built in Dunedin by wealthy businessmen. Cargill’s Castle is now a ruin and no longer accessible to the public. However, the castle built by politician William Larnach is in pristine condition and sits proud atop the peninsula, with sweeping views of the Otago Harbour. While small in comparison to the great British castles, Larnach’s version, built in 1871, is a decorative feast, set in a Garden of International Significance.
There is no shortage of things to photograph here.
