Oamaru is well known for a few things: the penguin colony, Victorian precinct, coffee, arty vibe and of course it is the home of Steampunk HQ.
The largest town in the Waitaki District in North Otago is an absolute must visit. There is something for everyone and something new to see around every corner.
With a weekend market, various parks and a view from ocean to mountains from Lookout Point, Oamaru is curious and will see you returning for concerts and events.
These photos are a small slice of what Oamaru has to offer (there is so much more to it!)
