  • Great historic house turned into a museum and vintage Victorian shop. I think I am more fascinated with the shop where you can get old school games and paper dolls etc!
  • Love this house. I went to here when studied at English language school neae here.
  • Nice old unique hoys and lively small garden.
  • 10 dollars a person to look around a house? I struggle to see how 2 people being guided through a homestead could and should incur a 20 dollar fee.
  • Auckland’s premier shopping precinct, Newmarket, is the legacy of 'rags to riches' auctioneer Alfred Buckland. Explore his rambling Gothic mansion built to house his family of 21 children! Highwic A visit to Highwic opens the door to family life in the colonial ‘boom and bust’ period of Auckland during the New Zealand Land Wars. Alfred Buckland was involved in provisioning the imperial forces during the Waikato War, (1863-1864). Highwic is featured as the first stop on the Waikato War Driving Tour. Highwic is a peaceful and leafy oasis in the heart of Auckland. Situated on a rise above bustling Newmarket, the lawns and gardens appear to be suspended above the city with high-rise towers just visible beyond the hedges. Surrounded by large specimen trees, with a Whimsical Garden, lawn courts for tennis and croquet and a meandering “Lovers Walk”, this garden delights all ages.
