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).

Pip & Pop

Pip & Pop have a huge exhibit at GoMA at the moment entitled “We miss you magic land” in the Childrens’ Gallery area.  It’s fun, definitely pitched to kids and has cool computer-based activities connected with it as well which my kids really liked.

It’s all a bit ‘trippy’ for my tastes, but certainly spectacular (see the gallery below – click the pictures for full size slideshow) – and your kids will probably love it too.

“We miss you magic land” is free at GoMA and finishes in early March, so if you are keen to see it – be quick!

I promise that this is the last blog post about GoMA for a while – I have other art galleries to haunt ;) – and here are links to my other posts from the same (photographically productive) day.

Lotus Life

The lotus weren’t in flower – but far more interesting to me this way.
