A must-visit for lovers of history, architecture and gardens, this rambling Gothic mansion is the legacy of early colonial identity, Alfred Buckland - businessman, farmer and father of 21 children. The house expanded along with fortunes and family.



Acerca de

Highwic is one of New Zealand's finest timber Gothic houses, dating from 1862. Highwic was built in 1862 as Alfred Buckland's family home. An English immigrant who thrived in this land of new opportunities, Buckland's wealth and social status is evident in the property's grand design.

A self-guided tour allows you to wander at your leisure through the lovely colonial home and to explore the 4 star Garden of Significance, with its romantic Lover’s Walk, providing a haven from the bustle of nearby Newmarket.

Highwic is the first stop on the Waikato Wars Driving Tour, taking in sites from this episode (1863-64) of the New Zealand land wars. Buckland & sons profited from the wars by supplying the Imperial troops with horses and supplies.
