Larnach Castle

 We spent a week in the southern part of the South Island, mostly new territory for me. With just a few specific things planned to see, we mostly just enjoying the wildlife and scenery.

One of the stops on the agenda was Larnach Castle, the only castle in New Zealand, which is in Dunedin. The woodwork was stunning to see and the furnishings were just amazing. Have a look.

This is the view from the top square turret. That's Hubby in the red shirt with his mum. We got up there by a very small and, to me, a bit spooky, spiral stairway.

Auch die Gipsarbeiten an den Decken - fantastisch!!!
Jetzt schaue ich mich noch ein wenig bei Dir um - bis bald!

Thank you for taking us all on a tour of this unique castle. You are correct about the woodwork. It is sensational, a product of true craftsmanship. THe glass porches around the house look like lovely space.

Didn't know there was a castle in New Zealand! What a beauty! You are right, the woodwork is amazing.

Liebe Betty,
Deine Aktion "Mittwochs um die Welt" läuft die jeden Monat?
Ich kann sie zur Zeit nicht finden... Schaue ich falsch???
Ich würde mich sehr freuen, wenn Du mir hier helfen könntest!
Alles Liebe

The mansion looks quite improved from when I was there years ago. I call it a mansion as it was not built for protection as in medieval times.
