Larnach Native Plant Detectives 🏅

Larnach Castle —

Want to be an ace plant detective? From 9am-5pm daily at Larnach Castle over the school holidays find the hidden clues using the native plant map. This challenge isn't just for children, how about giving it a go yourself? At the end of the fortnight, we will draw two winning entries.

The adult prize is dinner for two at Larnach Castle. The children's prize is a children's high tea for the winner and three friends.

This is the perfect opportunity to encourage children to learn about and identify our New Zealand native plants in a fun way.
