Otago Peninsula Glenfalloch woodland garden is a beautiful example of how the harbour’s panoramic views have been skilfully tied into plantings. Dunedin festivals are held in the grounds with the well regarded restaurant an additional treat for visitors.

Located on the scenic Otago Peninsula, it is tranquil, beautiful, much loved and treasured as a special setting for notable celebrations.
