City Highlights, Larnach Castle Garden & Olveston Guided Tour

Enjoy a scenic drive from Port Chalmers to explore Dunedin city and Otago Peninsula - the wildlife capital of New Zealand.

Grab your camera to capture stunning views while driving along Otago Peninsula with the most breathtaking bays, beaches and harbour. Spend some time at Larnach Castle grounds to enjoy the gardens.

Complete this tour with a 60 minute guided tour of Olveston Historic Home.

 Olveston is a time capsule as little has changed inside the house since it was occupied as a family home between 1906 to 1966.
