One of New Zealand’s finest timber Gothic houses, Highwic was begun in 1862 by Alfred Buckland, one of Auckland’s most substantial land owners, and his wife Eliza. It was extended in 1873 in the style of the original, which had been copied from American A.J Downings patternbook ‘The Architecture of Country Houses’.

Highwic was home to Buckland’s 21 children and remained in the family until sold in 1978. Furnished with antiques, there is much to interest and charm visitors of all ages, and in addition, the hectare of lawns and fine gardens provide a haven from the hustle and bustle of nearby Newmarket.

Today, Highwic also serves as a quality functions venue. Whether you’re visiting or celebrating a special occasion, this rare and beautifully preserved ‘Carpenter Gothic’-style building, is a delight.

Open 7 days until Christmas Eve (24 December) Closed Christmas Day and Good Friday.
Entrance to Highwic is on Mortimer Pass.
