“The Victorian Precinct: Consisting of only a couple of blocks centred on Harbour and Tyne Sts, this atmospheric enclave has some of NZ’s best-preserved Victorian commercial buildings. It's also ground zero for all that is hip, cool and freaky in Oamaru, and one of the most fun places to window-shop in the entire South Island.”

“Open for lunch and dinner, the Star and Garter is full of Old World charm serving traditional home style food with generous portions and good service. This has been around for years, my parents and in laws both had their wedding receptions there back in the late 1940s and there are wedding photos of back then. ”

“Steampunk HQ features a fascinating collection of retro-futuristic sci-fi art, movies, sculpture and sound. Basically, it's how the Victorian people may have imagined their future world if electricity had never been invented. It's wacky, weird and very creative unlike anything else you'll ever experience and definitely a MUST visit whilst in Oamaru. ”
