Penguins!! Oamaru is the place to see little Blue and Yellow Eyed Penguins. Both colonies are within easy walking distance from the hostel. Oamaru has a magnificent collection of Victorian era white stone buildings, including a museum, art gallery, cafs and pubs. Victorian market and steam train rides on Sundays.
Sample award winning cheeses at the local cheese factory. Aquatic centre and public gardens just across the road. Only 30 minutes drive to Moeraki Boulders and the Waitaki Valley - home to the
Vanished World fossil trail, salmon fishing, hydro lakes and Maori rock art.
Small, friendly, traditional hostel with welcoming atmosphere. Stay a few days and experience all that Oamaru has to offer. Relax and unwind in front of the logfire in the evenings.
