Owner description: Get a feel for the lives of the prosperous Victorian family who owned this splendid timber Gothic house with fine gardens.

Over rated, needs clean up, in a very busy place needs more switched on people in charge, part of NZ history but really poorly presented, I would not send tourists here

A wonderful old house, beautifully maintained where you can experience life for the upper class in this hilltop house with beautiful grounds.

Beautiful gardens, amazing history, great value, friendly service.... Highwic house has amazing character and history which is why we ventured here on the weekend. It has been restored perfectly with intricate decorations all over. We were greeted by a lovely lady who told us the history of the house in brief and happily answered any of our questions, she was delightful! For $9 we could walk around the house at our own leisure for as long as we liked, and all around the blooming, bright, well looked after gardens. Parking was a breeze, well signed and plenty of it.
