Olveston House and Glenfalloch Gardens - Port Chalmers - 2018 ( 7 Hours )
Port Chalmers, New Zealand | 05 Dec 2018

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

We will be met by our professional tour guide to board a luxury coach for a panoramic tour of the charming city of Dunedin, nestled in the rolling hills that lie at the end of Otago Harbour. The city has a rich and diverse history, with Maori explorers the first to settle in the region, followed from the mid-1800s by whalers, Scottish immigrants and gold miners. As an early centre of European commerce and culture, the city features grand Edwardian and Victorian architecture, as well as New Zealand’s first university. The University of Otago remains a major seat of learning in New Zealand and provides the city with a vibrant youth culture that, in turn, adds to Dunedin’s strong arts and cultural influence. The city is also a gateway to Otago Peninsula, whose rugged rocks and sandy beaches are home to a wide range of extraordinary wildlife.

Departing from Port Chalmers, our first visit will be to Olveston House for a private guided tour. Olveston was designed for Mr David Theomin by London architect, Sir Ernest George (1839- 1922), and built between 1904 and 1906. The Jacobean style grace and grandeur of Olveston is distinguished by a wealth of decorative detail. The home is within walking distance from the city centre, being built on an acre and surrounded by gardens it reveals elaborate furnishings, fireplaces and stained glass feature windows. The Theomin family travelled extensively and lavished their home with irreplaceable artifacts and priceless treasures. Bronze, cloisonné, and ivory from Japan, along with Chinese jade and ceramics reflect an interest in decorative art from East Asia, and some 240 extravagant paintings and graphics grace the rooms. Olveston House has only ever had one family in residence. Miss Dorothy Theomin,the last surviving member of the family, died in 1966 and the property, complete with all its contents, was generously passed into the care of Dunedin City. Morning tea will be provided, including a selection of teas and coffee, gourmet sandwiches, bite size cakes and slices, cheese scones with jam and butter.

We will then depart Olveston for our transfer on Portobello Road along the picturesque coast of the Otago Peninsula to Glenfalloch Gardens. Enjoy a welcome glass of bubbles upon arrival at Glenfalloch Gardens, followed by a 30 minute guided tour of the gardens. Gaelic for "Hidden Glen", Glenfalloch is situated in peaceful, relaxing surroundings where you can enjoy panoramic harbor views. Stroll among the rhododendrons, azaleas, magnolias, fuchsias and a profusion of other flower species which integrate with native ferns, exotic imports and indigenous New Zealand trees to showcase 120 years of conservation and expansion of botanical heritage. Glenfalloch Garden is an immaculate four season garden, with each season bringing its own special array of colors and fragrances.

Lastly, we will enjoy a three-course gourmet lunch at Glenfalloch Chalet within the Glenfalloch Woodland Gardens before returning to the pier.
