Larnach Castle & Gardens


One of NZ’s most renowned heritage eco-tourism areas


Standard Shared Tour – A 6 hour return trip travelling the low road to Taiaroa Head, stopping for a look at Otakou Marae on the way, then for the next hour while at Natures Wonders, you will travel by small coach over the farmland to the viewing areas and enjoy some magnificent scenery on the way.

Here, amidst truly spectacular scenery, are the world’s rarest penguins, Hoiho the ‘Yellow-Eyed’, the little Blue Penguins, the NZ Fur Seals and Cormorants (Shags) all living in their natural environment. After your wild life tour you can sit back and take in the view while enjoying a bit of lunch (own expense).
After lunch you have the unique opportunity to discover Larnach Castle. Spectacular tower views and beautiful gardens complete this enjoyable award winning experience. We return to the city via the high road for the most picturesque scenery towards the Pacific Ocean on one side, the Otago harbour on the other and Dunedin City straight ahead.

In addition to your wildlife tour we take a look at Baldwin St (steepest street in the world), Otago University, and Dunedin Railway Station before returning you to your cruise ship by the required time.
