NZ South – Otago Peninsula, Highcliff Rd

There are two main ways to get out onto the Otago Peninsula – the low road and the high road.  Both have their beautiful features!  This is the the high road from Dunedin to Larnach Castle / Portobello.

NZ South – Larnach Castle

These photos are from our trip to the South Island of New Zealand in August 2011 – I’m finally starting to go through them properly.  We had the most fantastic winter family holiday; this is a small part of it.

Larnach Castle is located on the Otago Peninsula near Dunedin.  I was in two minds about whether it was worth a visit, when planning our trip, but it was a really good family outing and the garden was full of opportunities for a photographer.

Photos are, unfortunately, not allowed inside (the interior photo above is taken in the cafe, located in the old servant’s quarters).
