Highwic House


A visit to Highwic House 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.
