Become a time traveller at Highwic
Imagine having 21 brothers and sisters to contend with, or being able to summon snacks at the ring of a bell. A visit to Highwic during the April school holidays will offer curious families a snapshot into Auckland society life in the 1860s.
Perched above Newmarket’s bustling commercial strip, Highwic is an island of Victorian heritage calm surrounded by a beautiful heritage garden and orchard. As you stroll through its rooms, all of which are ‘dressed’ with the Bucklands’ original furnishings, along with art and household items of the period, you’ll experience Highwic not as a museum but as a life-filled home, where everyone has just shot off to Saturday sports, friends’ houses and the shops.
