Oamaru Old Town

Oamaru is an historic town with white Oamaru stone buildings
and a Victorian heritage precinct.
Every Sunday, galleries, shops and cafés are open in
the Historic precinct, as well as a farmers market. Well worth a visit.

Oamaru is also well know for its blue penguin colony,
close to town along the Historic Harbour foreshore,
within walking distance of the Victorian Hertiage Precinct.
Here you will find a visitor center where the penguins can be viewed.

Oamaru has lovely public gardens dating from the Victorian days
they were started in 1876 and are one of the oldest in New Zealand.
A beautiful relaxing place to wander around, the main entrance is on Severn Street,
through the classical main gates. Inside you will find the Craig Fountain
made of fine Italian marble, statues, a summerhouse and a children's playground.

Oamaru’s Steampunk HQ is now officially open full time for the summer.
