How to get to Larnach Castle

Hello! I'm arriving at Dunedin on the 24th Dec on a cruise (with Diamond Princess). How can I get to Larnach Castle from the city center/downtown Dunedin? Is there bus? If so how long would it take/how much it costs?

Also is there a bus from the cruise terminal to the downtown/city center area? What number is the bus and is there a schedule?

Thank you so much for your help!

There will be buses to take you to the city centre.

You can then bus or taxi to Larnach Castle.

I have been to New Jersey and so know perfectly well Google works there. So get your fingers working and Google for bus timetables.

Or make it easy on yourself and simply do the ship's tour to Larnach Castle. Yes it will cost more but will save you time on Google ;)

As stated there are regular shuttle buses from the cruise ships at Port Chalmers to the city and back. Prices depend on the ship. There is a regular city bus which would be cheaper but only goes every hour and will not drop you off in the city centre anyway but at the supermarket which would not interest you.

There are no regular buses to Lanarch Castle. You will have to go on a tour bus, either arranged by the cruise ship, or arranged at Isite in the city when you get there (only a few metres from where the cruise ship shutttles leave you) or possibly online at the link mentioned in the previous post.

You must have left NJ already, but is the cruise ship charging more than:
