Oamaru

 Oamaru   |   Heritage   |   Urban   |   Victorian

 To quote Lonely Planet guides “Nothing moves very fast in Oamaru. Tourists saunter, locals linger and penguins waddle. Even its recently resurrected heritage modes of transport – penny farthings and steam trains – reflect an unhurried pace. Most travellers come here for the penguins, but hang around and you’ll sense the wellspring of eccentricity bubbling under the surface. Put simply, this is New Zealand’s coolest town…”
