Ohau Snow Fields

Ohau Snow Fields is all about fun and friendliness where people are important. Being a smaller area you get to know the people on the hill. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere in the Day Lodge is one of community. Having skied down to the chair lift from the car park the "bottom lifty" will advise you where the best runs are and then he will be checking on your next run to see if he was right.

Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony

See the world's smallest penguins in their natural environment...

Our Blue Penguins nest close to town under the cliffs along the Historic Harbour foreshore. The Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony is just beyond the Victorian Heritage Precinct and you are within walking distance of the town centre, close to shops, restaurants and accommodation.

Hot Tubs Omarama

Hot Tubs Omarama is a real oasis set on the edge of the Mackenzie Basin under the big Mackenzie sky. Landscaped mounds with plantings of native flora separate the tubs which are self-contained, including a changing room and shower. Enjoy watching the birds on the pond and the gliders surfing the wind currents. The kiwi version of Onsen is the perfect way to unwind.

Victorian Oamaru

The Oamaru Whitestone Civic Trust’s aim is to preserve and develop New Zealand's most unique collection of historic buildings into a living ‘Victorian Town at Work', creating in Oamaru and North Otago an iconic town and district where citizens and visitors can learn about and experience what life was like in Victorian New Zealand.
