Oamarama is renowned as a gliding and fishing mecca, it’s close to Mount Cook, Lake Ohau and the Lindis Pass into Central Otago. 
Nestled in a broad basin between the mountain ranges, Omarama is well known to glider pilots.
The World Championships are held in Omarama and competitors come from all over the world to set new records.
Close to Omarama are the spectacular Clay Cliffs, sharp pinnacles and ridges with deep, narrow ravines separating them.
The Clay Cliffs are made up of layers of gravel and silt, deposited by rivers flowing from glaciers existing 1-2 million years ago.
The cliffs are on private land and there is a $5 admission charge.
The turn-off to the Clay Cliffs is 3.5 km north of Omarama, then it’s another 10km on an unsealed road.
