Stay, see, savour

Whether you have visited in the past or are a first-timer, taking a trip to Ōamaru needs to be on your weekend getaway list this spring and summer. Only a short three-hour drive from Christchurch, there is so much to see and do in the beautiful Victorian heritage town.

When away on a trip, your choice of accommodation can often be a highlight. Ōamaru has a range of different options for stays, depending on what kind of experience you are after. Explore the luxury chalets, the cosy lodges, the unique treehouse hideaways, and so much more.

With warmer weather here, getting outside is key when exploring a new area. Friendly Bay is a small harbour in Ōamaru that leads to the jetty, a popular spot for fishing. Meander around its shoreline, and soak up the sites on the gentle walk that leads to the penguin colony.

Award-winning restaurants, fresh produce from sea and garden, and a talented community of local experts work together to make Ōamaru and its surrounds a fabulous culinary experience. Indulge your palates at its cafes, restaurants, wineries and breweries, and locally curated grocers and stores.
